Name is Ken (allienfuel). I am 40+ married self employed live in Yuba county foothills here in Nor-Cal. Been riding off n on most of my life mostly trail bikes. I crashed a few nothing to bad. But in 08 I went over the bars of my 82 gl 1100. Lady turned left in front of me instead of t-boning her i kicked rear around went into her sideways, did the superman over her cleared the car bounced n rolled but walked away 32 stitches to close my arm up but walked away!!! That was my first real crash man was I PISSED!!!! I rebuilt the bike figured we had a history now n that was worth building on. Took me a year to start on it only three weeks once i got going. Now 15,000 miles later I just picked up a 86 gl 1200 from my bro. I am not letting my 82 go I Love that bike (+ we got history). The 86 needs a few issues delt with, which is why I came to this forum, I got some ????????? Since this is my first day on here i'll save the ????? for later. Just thought I would throw my info out there first. I am still riding my 82 we call it our marriage councilor. I have plans of putting the 86 on the road this season it seams to be a bit more comfy on long rides I think it will pull my trailer a little easier (my 82 tends to run a bit warm). Well I guess thats about enough info for now. Medicate Safely!!!

Welcome to the Forum, allienfuel. I'm not that handy with a wrench, but there are plenty here that are, so don't hold back on the questions.

42 by number gets me.....But NOT SO FAST!!! If you are heavily medicated (as you state), that violates the doping policy of this Forum:eek:......Maybe you can take this to arbitration. For now though, I am still the BABY!!!! .....BABY:p:p
