New member and to Fl

Just poping in to say hi. Just moved back to Fl from CA a couple of months ago. Anyone from the Brandon area on this board?

If anyone can help me out with a problem i am having with my bike or suggest a bike shop around here that would be helpfull.

Bike was shipped from CA on a semi and after getting it here the throttle was a little hesitent. Just went to ride the bike for the first time in 1.5 months and now after i start it and hit the throtle it just stalls out. the bike was bought new in 2001 and only has 6K on the ticker. Any idea what the problem is?

I am no bike mechanic but i do fix my Cobra so i think i can handle fixing it if someone has a idea of what it could be.

Could be something in the gas, probably water. Try a gas treatment first before you spend the money on a mechanic. Or dump the gas tank and start with new gas. Could also be wet plugs or bad plugs or wires. Im not mechanic either, but it would be my first guess.
