Cool whats up

Howdy yall, just joined this forum. Been riding since June, was on a Vstar650 for a bit but recently picked up an SV650. Anyone get recommendations for a good affordable mechanic in south bay area? Looking to get my valves checked, might try to do them myself but it seems ambitious.

Anyways, glad to join this forum. I've been wanting a bike for a while and its such an amazing feeling being on one. I think one of my favorite parts is the sense of community, just getting waves and nods from everyone no matter what they ride. If you see a dude on a silver sv650s and a white helmet, who knows it might be me.
