HI, my name is Jacob. I'm a 37 year old carpenter with a wife, and four children. I'm a new member without a ride, but that will change very soon. My wife and I have talked for many years about the day we could afford a motorcycle, and due to the children and other expenses that talk has lasted awhile, but finally I find myself in the position to get up on two wheels! I'm currently looking at an89 gl but am anxious to hear any advice veteran owners may have. You seem to have a wonderful web-family, and I'm glad to be here.
