Just wanted to make a short entry to say hello to all the members of the forum. I just registered a few minutes ago and am excited to see what these pages have to offer.
My name is Diego and I started riding on December of 2011. I bought myself a Honda Rebel as a Christmas present to myself, as I had been dying to start riding for about 3 years prior. Just this past June, I upgraded to my current bike, a 2006 C50 Boulevard and I am in love all over again. The Rebel was a nice ride to start on, but after cruising around with a couple of friends and having trouble keeping up, I decided it was time for an upgrade!
I recently started making some upgrades to my C50 to try and make it my own, and I have to say that not much comes close to the pleasure of sitting down and working on a project for the bike. Since I purchased it, I have added some Vance and Hines Cruzers and a DynoJet Power Commander to the bike and have noticed a decent increase in performance. I've also added some ISO grips and a passenger backrest for the girl friend.
My latest addition is the Memphis Shades Batwing fairing and now I have to say that the old girl is starting to look the way I want her to.
I would love to now install a sound system on the bike, but this will be a project for the months to come. If anyone has pictures, I would love to see some of the sound systems that members have installed on their bikes so I can get some ideas and hopefully get started on getting something done on my bike as well!
I live in the New York/Long Island area, so if anyone has any suggestions as to Custom motorcycles shops that I could visit and shop around in, that would be much appreciated as well
Well, I hope this introduction serves a little bit to introduce myself as I had hoped and maybe be a bridge to making some new friends in the process.
Thanks everyone, and happy riding!
