Hi all,

Thanks for having me here. My name is Aram. I've been riding for over 20 years. Until last October, I was an everyday commuter, splitting lanes down various highways in the SF Bay area. I managed some fun rides too, but spent way to much of my two-wheeled time commuting.

I crashed my beloved '99 VFR800 a few summers ago (112k miles and would have reached 200). After that I opted for ABS (!) and so, with the insurance money, snagged a used BMW R1150RT. It is a comfortable and competent bike. Read: boring. (Great long distance hauler though).

Quit my job, moved to Oregon, and now have the luxury of riding for want-to instead of have-to. I picked up a cherry ST4S today. The seller was not only meticulous with upkeep, but threw in a heaping pile of parts, luggage, manuals, you name it. I took a short and mildly twisty first ride this evening. I had forgotten what "sporty" meant! The thrill is back.

So here I am. I have always worked on my own bikes (mostly) and I'm sure I'll be asking lots of dumb questions. I'm looking forward to participating here, and maybe even helping out with useful posts somewhere down the road.

Safe riding,
Aram

Welcome aboard and there is no such thing as a dumb question unless, you ask about oil or tyres.
