Please allow me to reintroduce myself

Recommended Posts

My name is Mike.  I used to frequent the forums before Facebook and then I stopped giving a shit about the time I had kids.  I got a new bike last week and have started to enjoy riding again.  My old bike is a runner and she was not real comfortable.  The new bike is an old man bike, but her guess what? I'm fucking old.

 

Anyways, hello!

 

 

 

 

Picture of my new bike - 2014 Honda CTX 1300

 

My old bike some might remember - 1988 Honda Hawk GT

Welcome back from your hiatus.

That Hawk looks incredibly well cared-for.

I've had her for quite a long time.  Lots of fun, but it's not really comfortable to ride long distance.  It's a great around town bike.  I had the motor punched out to 700cc's. She's a certified ripper.  Sounds great too.

Fox twin clicker shock with a hyperco spring.  CBR RR front fork and wheel, motoscope pro dash.

The motor is built by Hordpower.  It's got head work, cams, pistons etc..
 

But essentially you got it.
