I'm new to motorcycling but I already have my MSF class next week and I've read two books on complete motorcycle maintenance/safety, and the complete idiots guide to motorcycling which is more helpful than some may thing.

Anyways, I am looking for fellow riders in Colorado that can show me the ropes in a sense. Even if that just includes showing me their bike and all the different things and ideas they have for them.

Yeah, My motorcycle is in the shop for hopefully less than a week, I had the carbs rebuilt, the seat reupholstered, new headlight and gauges cleaned, all fluids flushed and refilled, I'd love someone to ride with once the bike gets back, my e-mail is [email protected], e-mail me and we'll talk about riding and stuff when I get my bike back.

It may count someday if I'm doing a little day trip to see some sights and go on a nice cruise, I may PM you and see if you'd like to meet me half way and go to a national park or somewhere cool.

P.S. in which state are you 20 miles from the CO border because that will have a big affect on those plans.

Due north on I-25 :p :p

Was down in Ft Collins last weekend chacking out the Bike shops & hopefully tomorrow if all works out we'll be in Boulder & can check out the bike shops there. Will have the car though as the wife & kids can't all fit on the bike :lol: :lol:
