The obligatory intro

I figured i would start here...

I`m Josh, out of Virginia. I`m not new to forums by any means so i`ll keep this to the point.

I`ve been riding off an on since 2000. Even back when i wasn`t old enough to have an M class license i still had a bike, taking brief breaks now an then for various reasons...financial etc.

I`ve previously had:

89 ninja 500
97 gs500
02 Kawi Vulcan 1500
97 GSXR 750 carbed
06 Honda 599 Hornet
98 GSXR 750 FI
98 VTR 1000 <---still have this, but has no fairings and in need of a carb rebuild
08 Buell XB1200XT
and now an 02 rc51 SP2

Edit: I tried to post pics but i have to have 10 posts first. Which i find strange since most any bike or auto forum i am a member of, people usually rant and complain when a new member doesn`t post pics of their bike in the intro.....i have to say this is a first.

Came with a second engine, 2 tubs of random parts an a assortment of extra fairings. Was an even trade for my Buell.

Perhaps the former owner was a member on this site, who knows. Either way hope he`s having a blast with my/his Buell now since he was specifically looking for a XB12 like mine in his trades...an i was specifically looking for another Honda, either RVT or VFR. So everything worked out for everyone lol.

My only qualms so far are that i have big feet and my heels keep touching the exhaust pipe. Other than that it`s been great thus far. Anyone know of a heat shield for behind the rear sets? I`de like to avoid melted rubber on my pipes...


Edit: pictures

Welcome aboard. Yeah, we like pics here - you'll be up to 10 posts in no time I'm sure (or try a hosting site like photobucket). FWIW it's "obligatory."

Welcome to the asylum! Some of us are madder 'n a bag of cats, but pretty much harmless otherwise. And nobody can massacre the English language like we can. Get stuck in and enjoy.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
