Hello everybody. I've been lurkin on the board for a little bit and decided to subscribe today. So I guess an introduction is in order. We moved here a few years ago and living in the San Diego area = riding weather all year. I used to ride in the 60's and 70's. Gave it up when kids arrived and the bikes just sat in the garage. Had a Honda CB450 for commuting and BSA650, Ariel500, Triumph 500 twin, Norton 850 at different times for weekends. Just bought a new XL 1200 C from Sam at the HD dealer in Chula Vista (now moving to National City). I'd rate him and them as good folks, given that they're dealers. I always worked on my own machines and I've added Stage 1 to the Sporty. Always wanted a Harley when I rode back then, but living in the Oakland area one had to think carefully about that bike. Now that I've got one it's as great a classic ride as I thought it would be. Now, if I could just get the wife on the back....

Welcome to the forum. I just happen to live in Chula Vista too. Been here all my life. I own Janies Bar right down the street from where Southcoast HD was. It's gonna be strange going to National City to go to the dealer.

:welcome: to the forums.

I lived in Chula Juana '86-'90, about a block in from I805. That was before my riding days, tho...and yep, the weather is good for riding year 'round.

Enjoy your time here.

Fine first post Mister B,

You have passed the audition and joined our fine forum. Congrats.

I have the same problem as you, or is it a blessing in disguise? I am referring to getting the OL to actually enjoy riding on the back of my Roadking.

Perhaps a different shaped passenger seat would help. Perhaps the newer bikes don't vibrate enough. I am not sure why but she just does not dig cruising on the king.

Enough of my petty problems. This bud is for you. Welcome to the gang. :thumbsup:

Chula Juana, indeed! That's so right that I didn't even see it first off. I think my mind just accepted it as a proper name.

Thanks y'all for the welcomes.

I wish I had no interest in it sometimes. When those tax bills come I hide and act like I don't know anything about it. LOL
