Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Hey Brian
Givi makes good luggage, but there are oodles of manufacturers that make great gear. I have also used Joe Rocket soft luggage and that worked out good for my naked bikes.
The snow at Whistler is just fantastic now. Lots of it. I just got back from a 3 day trip and had a blast. March should give great spring skiing.

Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Hello all.

My name is Justin. I'm located on the plains of Nebraska.....Far from anything remotely resembling a twisty road.

I've had 3 sportbikes and one cruiser before buying a myself a brand new 2003 Hayabusa a few years back. You won't find me hanging out at the local Sonic drive-thru on Saturday nights hardly at all. I'm usually out riding all day on the weekends. I'd rather be out riding and puting on miles instead of hanging around and sitting with my bike in a parking lot. I've been making plans to complete my first Iron Butt qualifying ride this June. I can't wait for that.

I've lost track now how many motorcycle forums I'm a part of. Most of the time I can be found on probably the largest sportbike message board on the net. I'm a super moderator there, so that takes up quite a bit of free time.

Glad to be a part of your community.

Gotta share a few pics, sorry.

Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Hey everyone, new member here...Just signed up, came across the site at an Aprilia forum I belong to. Recently bought a 2007 Aprila Tuono and am looking forward to doing some long weekend trips once the weather turns a bit more reliably warm (us So Cal folks are very thin skinned )

Anyway, gotta start looking at some kind of rear luggage . Like Strangeattractor, I'm a bit worried about long rides with little wind protection (riding under 80 being so hard to actually do ). Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself...looking forward to finding much good info here at the site.

Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Well, after about six or seven months I guess it really is about time to post...I live in central Indiana and work in IT as a systems analyst at a manufacturing company. I've been riding for 14 years and have progressed through a number of bikes, the most recent of which is my '06 Hayabusa. As Pashnit himself will I'm sure agree, it makes a very fine sport tourer. (Thanks for helping blaze the Hayabusa setup trail, Pashnit!) My wife enjoys riding as a passenger on the 'busa, and my 7-year-old daughter is already asking when we can get her helmet and protective gear! The bike is magical!

But enough about me--I'm glad to be a part of the forum, and I really appreciate all the great info the members so generously share. Thanks!

Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Greetings from Fremont, Ca - been reading the good info on this site for awhile and finally signed up.

Been into motorcycles for many years, mostly Dirt Bikes and off road racing, but now that I am getting older and slower, decided to get a Dual Sport Bike and try that - so now I have a 640 KTM to go with my 450EXC! it is a fun bike and so far I have enjoyed riding around on it.

Geeze, not another one....

Hi, all...

I'm a new (old) rider just reawakening the passion for motorcycles I had 20 years ago...

After much research (and a couple of refresher riding lessons), I picked up a 2006 VStrom last November, the first day it snowed here. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper about that timing!

Since then, I have been taking the odd ride whenever the weather has allowed it, each one longer than the last. (I like that trend!)

Here's a shot of my new bike I took last Saturday on a 244 km round trip to have lunch...

Pashinit has impressed me with the amazing photographs and inspired rides... If I'm not careful around here, I might even learn something!

See you on the road!

Re: Introductions - Introduce yourself here...

Hi there, gang.

I just signed in a few days ago and thought I should introduce myself here.

There are tons of threads here and I won't be able to follow them everyday (English is not my nature language), but I got really impressed with the cuality of the rides and pictures I found here. I'll try to stop by from time to time and sy hello.

My name is Nacho, I'm from Spain and I'm 34 years old. I own two Yamaha Ventures, one from each generation and I am very involved with the Venture world (member of the Venturers, forum administrator of the European Venture Club and president of the Spanish Venture Club).

Here are a couple of pictures of my girls:

I wish I could be much closer to your beautiful country and share some rides. California seems to be a great land to ride. Been in San Francisco a couple of times in bussines trips and loved it, but didn't get the chance to see the rest of the state.

Anyway. Thanks for building places like this great forum so we can dream awake.

Any time you need something from Spain, drop me a message.

Hasta la vista,

Hibernating in WI

Greetings from WI. It is a cold day here in the midwest and I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself. I am an avid motorcyclist with other hobbies that include photography. One day in mid 2005, while doing a Google search for "motorcycle photography", I was pointed to I fell in love with the site immediately! I think Tim recieved more of my attention that day than my employer did.

The pictures and descriptions of the rides are hypnotic and addictive. I love to do virtual rides through CA on the Pashnit site from time to time on my lunch hour. I often send links of some of Tim's pictures to my fellow riders to get them psyched up about spring and riding.

While we do not have as many vistas and mountians as CA does, there are some nice twisties carved out by glaciers, rivers, and streams. We try to enjoy what we have.

I have ridden several bikes throught the years and all have given me great enjoyment.
