Have been riding since I was 12, and that was 64 years ago. Had a GREAT '94 vt1100c that I traded in on a Harley in 2009 with about 143,000 trouble free miles. Sold the Harley and now have a 2002 Aero 1100, and am in the process of making the little changes that will make it truly my bike. Aero photos to come later

What's that biker quote- "you don't stop riding when you get old you get old when you stop riding". Look forward to hearing some stories ol timer. Won't be like the rest of the dickheads and tell ya to fuck off at least not yet. Gotta respect my elders :-).

thank you McV!! i meant to take some more pics, but its been raining the past few days... ive got a set of kruz,and some ebc brake pads on the way....
brake fluid IS amber, is a change mandatory?(my mechanic buddy says yes fluid turns brown, but its because of the internal components, and its not necessarily a big thing) im gonna order my dynojet stage 3 ina week or so (bought the bike used with vance and hines, and is supposedly stage 1 already)so i can do a pancake, really dig how they look, too.
next spring is a new chain and both sprockets any opinions on a front 15t vs a rear 41t? i dont do a lot of 65+ mph...(yet)
the reason i was asking about tires is because i really like to peg drag...
in the msf course, when doin the ovals, i was gettin real comfortable, huggin the lines in third, draggin peg, and my front tire hit a gravel patch and spilled....

PLUS, when i test rode the vlx(right after i became its new owner), a few weeks ago like, right after a super bad storm, first stop siggh, killd engine, didnt drop down to first, squireld it while tryn to left, fishtaild, hit the curb and dropd to the side... a few people saw, but some dude ina pickup kinda blockd the intersection so noone drove past, helpd me and the bike up (i do know how to lift it solo) and as i raise my eyes from the bike up the guys sweater , what do i see on his fleece(MSF) lol, please dont talk about me in the next class!! : x

Here's some insight: properly full out your profile and get some pictures up in ur gallery. Hard to give you some insight when I don't know what you have. Welcome to the forum
