New Guy!!

Hey guys I'm form Buffalo, New York. I have a 99 R1 and a 1973 Honda CB750K cafe racer. I also have a 99 400ex and 1986 honda 200x. I get good deals on stuff or I work for them. NOT rich by any means! I am a carpenter. Have been riding for a long time. But the R1 is definitly the fastest thing I have ever had! I love it though![e IMG]http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg173/jimford75/DSCN1204.jpg[/IMG]

Welcome!

Nice mix of old and new. Sweet R1. And I like the CB Cafe bike too!

Welcome to SBW! (<- standard greeting)

Nice garage full of toys. Love the cafe! It's not meant to start all the time; it's a Honda after-all.

Start with www.newenough.com for gear. When the dollar was good, there were heaps of guys down here buying stuff from them and the SBW crew (Vash especially) has been singing their praises for years.
