Re: Looking at all you droppers.....
Guess this is as good a place as any to put my 1st post. First post, first drop, first drive...hope this isn't indicative of anything. A bit of history...got my first BM in '72, fully dressed 750 , went from an 80cc Suzuki to that, what a change. Next BM was a '76, 900cc, also a great bike. The mistake I made was selling them. Next bike was a '86 Suzuki 1100 touring bike(can't remember model), also a nice bike, but not a BM. As the years passed I thought I would never be able to afford another BM, my first one was $2500.00 new, now priced at $27,000.00(in Canada). I found a used 2004 with low mileage, great shape, great price...sold! Picked it up, but hadn't rode a bike for a few years and the difference in weight in my old BM's compared to this one was noticably different. Took the back roads home, fine until the first stop sign. I guess you can picture the rest, next thing I knew I was picking it up...got to strengthen those old legs. Fortunately nothing was hurt other than my pride, other than a slight scratch on the chrome on the bottom roll bar(do they still call it that)? Anyway, I have got my old riding skills back, managed to get a few runs in before wintering it and can't wait to get it out of storage if the snow ever melts. I just discovered this site....I have more to ask, but need to check out more of the posts first. Great Site.
