Hello BARF

Hello All,

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I have been riding since ~2010 but when I moved to the bay area ~3 years ago I had to leave my Buell X1 and Honda XR250 back in Missouri , and yes this time away from riding nearly killed me.

A few months ago I picked up a 03 636 , and boy is it great to be back on two wheels!!!

I attached a few pictures of my bikes, hopefully they show up correctly .

The best performance upgrade is upgrading the operating system of the operator. It is cheap, easy, fast, safe and works on every bike you will ever ride.

I miss my buell
The adventure is in the rider, not the bike.
Get Trained!
My dad used to own a Buell, until one day when he accidentally left his garage open overnight. Now he owns three.

Delay gratification and exercise financial responsibility, you say?
Why do you hate America?
