New To Board

After taking a two year hiatus from riding and focusing on my jeep I am back. I just picked up a 2003 ZX-636 and I love it. I had been riding GSXR-750 and 1100 for 13 years and I can tell you this bike is amazing. I test drove it in Daytona on Monday along with about five other bikes (in the rain mind you) and I just had to have it. I have a few questions though as most all of my riding has been done in Daytona and West Palm Florida areas.

1. anyone in my age group (30+) like to ride on the weekends? I am getting too old and wise for the crazy shit and I just want some cool riding partners who love to ride and like to stay alive.
2. I need a good reliable mechanic. I had one (Vern Boyce) in West Palm and he was fair honest, built legend motors, was very competent and was also a good friend of mine with a air price. I live up in Glendale (bell and 59th area) any reccomendations?

Thanks in advance

Smile Hey Triker,

Welcome to sBw. I fall in your age group. don't know about the wise part though. Let's see if when it slows down for me we can hook it up and terrorize the streets.

There's 2 type of riders, the 1's that have gone down & the 1's that are going down. I've been down, which one are you?

I ride on the weekends...

Well I got a flat tire yesterday so I wont be back on the rode until I take care of that. My insurance just ran up so I have to shop around for just liability. Any ideas who is cheap around here?
Feel free to email me about doing some riding on the weekends and I will let you know If I'm available. I have tank a bag & seat bag.

Low prices on tires

Call "Q".... he's put a new set on my bike for less than I could find anywhere else, even after searching the internet, and all local dealers.

he goes by Mr 954 on this board I believe,

but his shop is called "non-stock cycles" it's in mesa

Hope this helps!

Ride like your life depends on it.... because it usually does!!!

insurance

I found geico was the cheapest for me, a couple hundred a year, and my 900rr, and ex500 were covered with liability.
