New forum member from Mississippi.

Post by erljhnsn2003 on Tue Aug 14, 2012 2:29 pm

Hello All,
I'm a 53 year old married father, grandfather, navy veteran and rider of approximately 40 years, off and on. Just got back up on two wheels this year after a couple of years away. Just never seems to get out of the blood.
I picked up a 1977 Suzuki GS750 to get my riding skills back up to par before buying something newer. But, darned if I haven't fallen in love with this bike. I rode Harleys for years (last one was a '48 panhead) and I've got to say I much prefer the price of parts on these UJM's.
Anyway, that's enough for starters.

Thanks, Butch

I love my V-Strom I bought it in New 08 and have put 40,000 miles on it, and I would buy another in a heart beat, loaded it up and went camping many times, it is a pack mule.....Your bike looks like it just rolled off the show room floor, very sweet cheers

Thanks for all the welcomes from all y'all. I've been away for a few days do to a low speed dismount in a left hander. Relatively light damage to the bike and self but sure as heck bruised my ego. Embarassed

Ouch, just glad you are relatively ok. Bike parts aren't that bad. People parts are a lot harder to get. Wink
