Personally, I wouldn't allow my wife to be part of any forum I belong to.
I hate when she goes, You can't say that!

But that's just me.

Welcome aboard.

Lol. Shes not scared of joining just didnt figure she would be interested but I mentioned it and she might. This is her 1st bike, shes getting ready to take a course and get her licence. Right now were getting the bike ready. It needs a few cosmetic things right now. One rear signal is broken and the windshield is clouded over like some kind of film on the inside of it that flakes off. It had a few little imperfections but she didnt want something pristine to start with anyways. It rides good. Just went and got it legal yesterday and going over some parking lot maneuvers later.

I was going to ask for pix of her in my first post but I didn't want to seem too forward

Well, I'm glad I haven't talked her into joining now. I'll find a source of info for these bikes elsewhere. Thanks.

I hope you're joking because we sure are.

We do that here.

A lot!

Hey Sparky, we're sorry if the comment went over the wrong way. Many of us have been around for a long time and all know each other. Sometimes we can forget that we're talking to a new member who doesn't know exactly how to take things. I promise that Jim is a good guy and meant absolutely no offense with the comment, he was just trying to inject a bit of humor.

Beezer's a good guy too, but don't tell him I said that.

Normally the new guys get assigned to the coffee maker.
This place can be more fun than the time the hogs ate my sister, and besides, you won't find better info on the webs anywhere.

Would it make you feel better if we said nobody wants to see your wife?

Let me offer you a few of our favorite brews!
Cheers!

Thanks for the editing help. Can you do some magic editing for BBQJ, too?
