Default Newbie from Ontario Canada

Hi all!

I'm a newbie rider and a proud owner of my first bike. A slightly customized 2005 650 Custom.

I've already been bitten by the customization bug. Recent purchases: small Yamaha engine guards, backrest assembly, saddle bags, Doming Specialties Air Cleaner Cover.

On the wish list: new exhaust system... I'm thinking BUB Big Willys; I'm also thinking about a custom oil filter cover and engine guard from AD Custom Chrome. (From what I've seen on the forums, they do awesome work.)

I served in Canadian Navy from 1977-1996 and during that time I was based mainly out of Halifax Nova Scotia. Since retiring from the Navy I've been sailing office chairs in the Dilbert Zone. Currently live in Kitchener Ontario Canada.

Cheers!
Weeble

Hey Welcome from Alberta! I'm orginally from Montreal and lived in Scarborough for 4 years in my kidling days. This is a great forum. But be forewarned - you WILL end up spending lots of money with all the mod ideas you get.

We have another regular who was in the U.S. Navy - Sushi_Biker. Hopefully he'll be along to say hi...

Thanks for the warm welcomes! Wow, what an eclectic bunch we are, across borders, times zones, and even continents, we all share at least one thing in common, our rides.... and, from what I can see, in many cases, even more commonalities.

Ahoy my fellow swabbies, those both serving and retired! A special hello to the bowhunter who owns a bike that once was a clone of mine... at least when they first rolled off of the assembly line. Nice to see what direction you've taken with your customization Rocky, hope I too may also serve as an inspiration as I endeavour to make my bike my own.

I recently read that statistically, in North America at least, only 1 person in 10 will ever ride a motorcycle. Feel sad for those other 9 folks, but must admit that it feels really good to be in the company of those who are not those other 9 people. :-)

Best regards,
Weeble
