Newbie to the site

Since this is the introduction section and nobody has introduced themselves yet, I guess I will be the first.

My name is Frank and I have been riding for just about 8 years now. My first bike was a 1989 Honda CBR. This is the first year of the Hurricane was renamed to the CBR. It was the great Red, White, and Blue addition.

I upgraded about 1 year later to a Suzuki Bandit 1250. The Bandit was a great bike and I'm not sure why they didn't sell better. It was a naked style sport touring bike that was basically 9 grand out the door brand new. It was a great value for a really strong bike. In September of 2008, I had a pretty bad accident on that bike. A lady ran a red light and flipped a u turn in front of me. Needless to say, I went down and the Bandit's days were over. Luckily, mine were not. Maybe I'll expand this story at another time.

My current bike is a Honda VFR800. I've always wanted one of these because it is a great mix of the bike styles I like, Sport and Sport Touring. I have always commuted on my bikes, so the comfort of the touring bike is important, but I just love the look of the sport bikes.

I'll add pictures of them all at another time. I look forward to meeting and discussing this passion for riding with you all. Please gear up and be safe!

Welcome! There's a couple Bandit 1200's on sale in the kalamazoo area and I wish I had the funds to snatch one up!

Welcome, I'm also a newbie here. I had a 350 honda scrambler back in 1972 and that's about the extent of my biking. I'm here basically to keep this place in check as I know the admins have very little sense, of humor that is.
