Default Newbie with an 8 ball

Hello all, my name is Alfonso. I just recently bought myself a 2014 Hammer 8 Ball while I was just 'browsing' at a local dealership. Either way, I'm still totally satisfied with the purchase. This is the first bike I'v owned really. I've owned one before many years ago that I was going to learn on, but that never really got off the ground. So far I love the bike and already have plans to add/change a bunch of stuff that I said I would not do. I've been browsing here since I bought the bike, which was the beginning of this month, and finally decided to make an intro post.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the 8Ball Hammer.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
