Hey all

How's it going everyone. New to the boards so I thought I would introduce myself. I'm Ian from Columbus, MS, right now I'm riding a 04 GS500 that doesn't belong to me. My buddy dropped it and won't get back on it. Since I had to sell my Ninja when I moved back here from FL he just gave me the keys until he figures out what to do with it. I work at a Kawi dealership and hopefully this spring I'll be picking up a new ZX6RR that will be a street/track bike. I'll be racing in Birmingham, AL so if anyone else will be there this spring and summer drop me a message and we'll get together. Talk to you all on the boards, be safe and keep the rubber side down.
-Ian

Thanks Dream. I'm enjoying the board so far. It seems to have a bit of everything for everyone and everyone is pretty friendly. A lot like a bike group is supposed to be I guess.

Where in the panhandle? I've lived in Tallahassee twice....anywhere close to there?

Also, welcome Ian. Glad to have you here, and this site has been the best site by far for answering any and all questions, both motorcycle and non-motorcycle. Everyone here's pretty funny, and you'll get some good laughs out of this group. If you're ever having a crappy day, log on here for a laugh and to see that your day isn't as bad as some of ours!

I was living in Arcadia, it's about an hour and a half south of Tampa. What a crap hole of a town. I never thought I would be glad to move back Mississippi.

Way to go, E!

Fort Walton's supposed to be pretty cool, from what I hear. You miss FL?

you betcha it was... Destin - right next to FW... had some awesome semi private beaches you could get away with alot on ofcourse that was back in 1989 and before LOL... I think they've gotten more strict now.. infact I think my swinsuit would be considered illegal to wear there now

I do miss it but my family is all there so I go revisit often.. but I enjoy the snow time fun on the sleds up here in MI and dont' think I could do with out a real winter ... in that part of FL we still got freezin temps but hardly the snow to go with it to make it worth while...

I made the mistake of moving down there with someone and it didn't work out real well.

I'm on the work comp now but I'll try and get a picture or 2 to throw in the gallery.
