Just hatched...

Just wanted to say what's up to all. Shout out to Smitty and Monkey (you guys are all over this Forum). Took the MSF Course in March and couldn't wait to start riding. Unfortunately, due to the fact that I have good but not impeccable credit, I was going to have to wait to fulfill my dream. Or so I thought. Was lucky enough to buy a 98 F3 off a buddy of mine at a nice price...but here's the catch: not running (laid it down in a ditch with about a foot of water) and no fairings. Perfect! I've found my summer project. Engine needs to be rebuilt (I'm putting in a 2mm overbore kit) and changing out the tranny while I have the case open. And yes, I do know my way around an engine. Plus, I've got the Honda shop manual to guide me. However, if anyone has taken on a similar task...your input as I start my journey will be appreciated. Can't wait to start...at least this way, I can learn about the intricasies of the bike before I start riding.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
