Hi all.. Just a few lines about myself. I worked as a plastic injection mold tool maker and an Electro Mechanical Tech ( 30 yrs total ) Retired in 1998. I have been riding since the mid 50s. I wish I had some of the bikes that I owned ( several Indians, a Vincent Black Shadow, Harleys, a BSA, an Ariel ). In 2009 I traded my Honda Shadow in for a 2009 Yamaha 950T. I rode it for 36000 trouble free miles and traded it in for a Victory Cross Country. Hopefully, this bike will be trouble free as well. I have been reading this forum for several weeks now, and I know there are a lot of very knowledgeable and helpful members on it.......Burnzee...
