The New Guy

My name is Mike (Hawg is my road name) and I just joined tonight. I have a 2002 Volusia that I bought in 07 for $500. She had been parked in a mans back yard for a few years without as much as a tarp over her. I bought a new battery and he poured about a gallon of gas in her. Took about 15 minutes to get her to fire up but she did and I rode her home with my wife following close behind. Over the next 3 months I changed changed fluids, hoses, plugs, ect... Since then, she has seen several states and all kinds of weather! Over the years I have had people tell me I need to "upgrade" to a Harley but honestly, I'm perfectly happy with my 10 year old little red scooter!

Welcome. Where are you from? Also, I will assume you bought it in '07 and not '97

Kids were going crazy when I posted the original! I claim Tennessee as home and yes, bought her in 07! I will post a pic of her as soon as I figure out how to get it here from the phone.
