This RED background burns my eyes!

What's up everyone? Need4Speed750 referred me to this site.

What's the deal with the red? Can I change it? Couldn't find it in options.

If there is no option, I will have to drink a cold one.

Hey welcome to the site..glad to have you!! The red is the basic background, no other skins available as of now. If it helps any, you can try turning down the tint on your monitor, that might help it for ya!

BTW IG..we also have a members pics thread as well if you have any you'd care to load up for us!

Sit back, relax, and post away!

He-he, I don't mind. Gas man, oh..., well..., never mind. But, really, that red color got to you, and you don't even realize it, and you already jacked up my thread.

Anyway, joking aside, if there is no choice, I can live with that. It's just if I am at work, and let's say my boss (did I mention I have somewhat limited respect for him) passes by, it's easier for him to notice red screen.

I am new to this board, but I've been around sportbikes.net, katanaplanet.com, gixxer.com, cycleforums, and hayabusa.org for a while.

I don't really have a bike, but like to go to different boards and post around.

Nah, just kidding.

I'm 40+, been riding for 4 years. Started on Katana 600, got 'Busa in December - an amazing machine! Been doing occasional track days for 3 years.

I am quiet and serious, but there is a wild side which takes over when I ride. Just trying to keep it under control.

Thanks for the welcome. Especially Gas Tank, err..., I mean Gas Man.

Thanks for kind words, guys.

Hey, Cris, you got me laughing here. Why would I think you are fat?

And, yeah, I love horses. Actually, I've been horseback riding for years, too. But, I haven't ridden horses since I started riding bikes in 2000. Go figure.

I need to get around and post more pictures. It's just there comes a point when you think: "All right, another picture, they all look like some other picture I already have." You know what I mean?

I spent many many years around horses..owned and showed several of them. good good memories. even picked up a 1 year old gelding back in the day, raised him, broke him myself, and showed him.

Wow! You really were so close to horses!

Maybe, one day, I will have a house with a small ranch for 1 - 2 horses.... Maybe... One day...
