I'm still navigating thru this place, and so far it's better than most forums in terms of volume and info.

Stumbled in just surfing for exhaust spec's; and after the Steeler's blew the game tonight I got bored and decided to introduce myself (my condolences to Pittsburgh...).

Won't waste a lot of words - got bit by the bug young, then got away from 'em fer quite a few years. One b'day 'bout 7 years ago the wife got tired of my moping and flipping thru magazines and told me to just go buy one. Started out cheap ($700 Suzuki) an' got progressively worse - or better, as I see it - and am now the proud owner of an '01 Indian Scout.

Have owned 2 H-D's - had a 125 Rapido in high school, and bought a new AMF FX in '76 when coming home from the Marine Corps. Both were great machines, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The FX was stolen 2 weeks after the last payment had been made, and believe it or not, for the next 15 years I had dreams about that scoot. Couldn't afford to replace it 'cause of other responsibilites/priorities, but I sure hope whoever stole it needed it more than I did...

Quite a large crowd in here, and although I've never financially supported a public forum I will give it serious consideration - like I've said, ya got a nice place.

Billy Buck...sorry to hear about your blues...welcome in !
Yeah, I wish it'd never've happened either. On the other hand, I'd crashed twice on it out of general craziness, so I may not 've had long to live the way it was going...

Welcome to you too - lots of us newbies around here from what little I've seen so far...

The more the merrier, as they say :D
