Default new guy from southwest mi

Picked up my new XC last week(bought it at the end of Jan). So far it`s a great bike! Only got to put 200 miles on it.Winter is trying to come back. I`am happy and so is the wife.This was our 15 year ann.
present to me--oops-- I mean us. Only thing I don`t like is the famous buffeting. Ordered a Cee Baileys windshield and lowers,thanks to this forum.
Planning on some mods after the first service. High flow air filter and stage 1 download and will do the 5 hole mod to the rear of the muffler. I did that to my last bike, sounded pretty good.
Started out on a 1983 Suzuki gsl550 in 2005.Outgrew the bike pretty
quick plus it got crappy gas mileage.Then bought a 2004 Honda Sabre.That was a great bike. Pretty quick and fun to ride, But not really made for long distance with 2 people.

Anybody else out there brewing their own beer? On tap now black IPA,america brown, amber, and fermenting a German alt

Welcome homebrew! There's just nothing that compares in totality to what the Vics have to offer. Haven't brewed at home but I have always thought it would be a great hobby to get into. Good luck and post often, it makes the forum a great place to hang out when you aren't on the road. Oh and happy 15th!

I just knew from your name it had to be beer. Welcome, glad to have you.
