A Quick Hello

Hey people,thought i'd drop in to this regional to say hello and give a slight intro of myself. Ilive in the southwest of Va/southeast of Tenn. Bristol...the city in which i live is split by both states.I'm prob old enough to use a walker at 52,but i prefer my 02 Kaw ZZR1200. It is nice to see the rise of attention that comes with sportbikes as i believe most not just to be pieces of mechanical art,but the best dam engineered machines one could ask for. While i cannot carve a mountain as most who ride sports or sporttourers like mine,i make some good attempts at twistes and for sure open throttle when open Hwy. Don't wanna bore anyone...so i best move along. Later,DeWayne

Try www.photobucket.com That is the easiest way. Once you upload the pic just copy the url into your post.

Sounds Great...jus made a couple trips Pigeon Forge,Plan to do more since i bought season passes.What ya doing the 9th? Theres this MAKE-A-WISH ride me and another guy are going on that begins in Rodgersville. I kno it's short notice,but thought i'd throw it out there.iTs for a 11yr old who had dreams of meeting OCC.Theres more to it...but i don't wanna take up peeps time or Hijack Threads.If you want...you can message me anytime and i'll even give ya email addy if you want. I thought of hitting K-Town to check out shops to look at accessories etc. I wanna do a lil to my Zed,but not the full extent of some of the machines you see here.But matching/finding parts for the Zed becomes a challange,especially since they no longer produce them. Later,DeWayne

Enjoy

TRIP,have a good ride,i've yet to put myself into the gap.Meant to try when i had my FZR...but didn't.Now with the Zed i've the urge even more because of the broad range of the engine.I know out of respect for others( me Major SloA$$) that i need to go when there are the least amount of riders.I need to learn some about the roads,but i'm still trying to adjust to the 500+lb Zed and trying to flick her thru the corners with confidence.I've got risers on the clips and have considered taking them off,prob cause i was so use to my FZR.Do some pics if you can and i look forward to ya returning WITHOUT adding decor to the tree!

Lean and Smile...
