Default year old month old noob

Hi I'm new here and to riding in general I started off a year ago after taking the MSF training course and got my own bike, a 700cc 23 year old honda cruiser. its a bit over sized for a starter bike and needed a lot of tlc but It was the best I could afford at the time and a bad wreck put me out of ridding shape for the rest of the season witch thankfully gave me a long time to give the poor bike the cosmetic and mechanical overhaul it needed.

anyway its tough getting by alone as I don't personally know many other riders so I thought I might hang out here and learn some things before I end up having to hunt for parts on Ebay again.

White-hot Liquid Magna flows down the mountainside, destroying everything in its path. Villagers panic, running screaming as Lava Bombs fall from the heavens. The Fist of an Angry God has struck the small and meek once more...........

You mean pics like this?:






Upload them elsewhere; then link-insert them. It's the only reliable way.

the ghost flame paint job I designed but had somebody else in town do, I know the motor is a V45 but from the sound of the replies I might have bitten off a bit much for a first bike so I think I will continue to take it very easy for a while.
