New Guy From PA

Hi all, name is Mike and as stated in the title I am from PA.

Figure I should probably tell you a little more about myself. I have an 04 Volusia that I picked up this past spring. It only had 4000 miles on it(it has alot more on it now).

I have been riding a motorcycle since I got my license(16 years ago). I never really had that first car, I got a motorcycle instead and rode it rain or shine. It was a 1980 Honda CB450. After some time in Korea with the Army I couldn't bring myself to take it back off my pops(he had rode it the entire time I was away) so I signed the title over to him and went out and bought a 1992 CB750 honda nighthawk. It was hard to afford even that at the time but, I loved that bike. It had enough power to get a little sporty on the highway but it wasn't so much that I would get myself into any trouble with it. It is now in my basement waiting for me to find the time to give it a little attention.

I had been lusting after a Volusia since I saw one for the first time on the show room floor right after they first came out. I wanted one then but the wife was about to have our first and there just was no way to find the money for it. It took me a long time to finally get what I wanted but I could not be happier with it.

Welcome neighbor to the north! Glad you found a nice '04 Vol, I have an '07 myself and have enjoyed it since I got it in 2009! Mine had 1800 miles on it, now it has over 18,000. Enjoy!

Welcome from NE OHIO. I bought my '03 Volusia in April as a weekender for the wife & me. Had it out yesterday, but the batwing fairing doesn't provide the kind of protection my Pacific Coast does.

'96 Honda PC800
