Interested rider here!

Let me know where you want to ride....I'm trying to plan a Sunday ride down to South Beach, but I want to see if I can get a group going.

Another good ride is to Fuddruckers in Kendall in Miami on a Thursday evening. LOTS of bikes there on Thursday nights!

Let me know.

Well. tomorrow I have my daughter's gymnastics meet!

Actually, I won't be able to ride until next Sunday, cause my wheels are getting chromed as we speak.

I should have my bike back by next Wednesday.

Let's see if we can plan a ride, with time, say for Sunday the 21st of this month? Let me know!

I thought about powdercoating my wheels as well..... but I really wanted tho chrome "look".

I'm using local guys; they were at the Fort Lauderdale Bike Show which was about a month ago. Their work is excellent.

As a matter of fact, check out their website: www.extremecustomsportbikes.com

As far as powdercoating is concerned, there's some guys out of Boca who do excellent work. Their site is www.stmachine.com

I'll post some pics of my bike when its done. I should have it back by next week. (I CAN'T WAIT!!!)

By the way, what do you ride?

Im on a 04' 600RR. Teh rear of the bike is black but the swingarm is silver. It kinda sticks out. This is my project bike and im having fun with it.

Im saving for my dream purchase. I love the new Duc 749S. I was so close to buying it then I went with the RR. Its funny to think it was between 2 totaly different bikes.

Bro, let me tell you....the Ducati 996 is my DREAM bike! But my Honda is sooooo comfortable compared to the Ducati, especially for longer rides.

Also, there's a LOT you can do to your bike project-wise and have lots of fun doing it. Probably easier to do stuff yourself on your Hunda than on a Ducati.

You may want to check out the site for Carbontek; they have a project bike (honda cbr600 rr) all done up in carbon fiber. Even if you don't like the carbon fiber look, there's LOTS of ideas to nab up.

By the way, we have similar zip codes! We may even be neighbors. (My zip is 33067)

I'll let you know when my bike is done.

Hey what kind of Doc are you?

I know what you mean about the Ducati. Its a dream bike. The one you keep forever.

Im having fun with the RR doing stuff. Its so easy to play with.

I'm an Internist.

I live near Parkland/Coral Springs,but my office is on Oakland Park Boulevard.

By the way, I posted a thread about the Miami Bike Week coming up in April.
Check it out.... Let's see if we can get a group to ride down there. I'm gonna see if I can round up a couple of buddies to ride, but anybody who wants to come is welcome.

It would be ideal to get a nice sized group ride going down there for some of the events; Last year it was a lot of fun, but it SUCKED going solo!
