Chicago area member saying hi

"hi" lol

Just wanted to drop in and say that I feel very lucky to have found this site!! Can't believe it took me this long. I've got a metric assload of questions regarding the 929, I've got some plans for this bike.

Coming off an R1, was gonna get something new ('05/liter) but came across a deal too good to pass up. Besides the 9xx series has a special place in my heart as I've owned two in the past, a 94 and a 96.

That's about it. Looking forward to gaining as much knowledge as possible, saving a few bucks, and hopefully meeting some members for rides.

I know some great roads as I'm sure others here do. Located in the NW burbs.

Thanks for havin' me

Re: Chicago area member saying hi

Hey Scratch, Welcome. I've got an '00 929 as well and love it dearly. But just put a dp on an '05 so am waiting for the snow to clear and the sand to be swept up before picking it up. Talk later. llhank

Re: Chicago area member saying hi

Thanks for the warm welcome people!

I know what ya mean, saving $$$ and riding bikes doesn't seem to mix very well But it's all good, all part of the fun (till the CC bill comes in). I am hoping to save a few bucks on gear here and there, gonna do my best. All my gear disintegrated(sp?) in Oct, owie. And then of course I'll be needing some *more* performance mods. And suspension mods. And tools, and...uh oh here we go again..

Would love to go to Grattan, details?

From the Chicago land area, Scratch, so when the weather is right, let's catch a ride.
