Default New to the forum!

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!

Welcome from MA. You'll be limited on your selection of amplifiers because of the physical size and lack of locations to put one. The best amp on the market right now for a bike is the Rockford Fosgate Punch amp.
