Bought a 01 red/black new in 01, only new vehicle I have ever owned. Been looking at this site and the old Vol site (where I was a member under another user name) for years. Saved me time/money/headaches more times than I can recall... You guys rock!
In those years 14 other bikes (and a wife) have come and gone but I will always keep my Vol. I have a couple of mods on her and 38k - will post pictures when I go find the sticky about how.
I just picked up a pair of rashed up R/B 2001 VL800s this weekend to cobble together and make into a bobber (and MAN does it have issues but what do I expect for $500?) so I find myself again on the site. Figured I would join this time - good to be here/back :)

Im sure someone put car oil in it, or it has a stripped drive line, or a bad kickstand switch, or something that I would never figure out on my own without you guys.

Anyway, I'm in Springfield VA if anyone is around my way and wants to ride.

the Vol is designed to run on "Car Oil" see owner manual.

bobbers

Welcome from Virginia. I like bobbers too. As can be seen in my pic.
I like it, I am doing some figuring for a seat pan and seat now -I like the way you handled that area on yours, classic look. Trying to decide if springs on the seat is redundant on a bike with rear suspension since I am not going to hardtail it.

Wow, you go way back if you mention the old site. I liked it when you said "I've gone through several bikes and a wife...."

Made me smile. :wayhappy:

As long as your still riding, I know you'll be OK.

Welcome back.
