Some people can't build a bike (harumphme). That doesn't mean their store-bought bike is any less fun.

I'm sure Longride will chime in on this one. His Knuck is in pieces all over the garage floor, I think. Yes, we wrench (some more than others).

I don't know..I haven't gotten that far into this place yet. Hopefully I will find this is a place for all types without the attitude of other forums.
Most of the regulars here ride all year long (snow and ice withstanding). As far as the attitude, I can't help you there. Sarcasm and wit abound here, but underneath is solid advice from experienced (are you experienced?) riders.

Welcome to the forum.

I am a year round rider..hell I have even ridden my xs in the snow,although is wasn't by choice(went to the shop was clear, went to ride home and it had snowed about 3 inches.)
I have been on 2 wheels since I was 6 and have been wrenchin' on everything with a motor since before I understood how to put it back together on even how it worked.
I can deal with sarcasm cuz if you don't have thick skin you don't make it very long in a bike shop.
I would love to see some pics of Longride's parts pile...

Yeah well you got them fancy-pants E-lectric lights on there. REAL men got acetylene lights and they know how to pump 'em up and light the fire! You probably just flip some molldern switchamabob or turn some key now doncha?

I'm pretty fond of my electric foot myself though I've kick started my share of bikes.

The yamaha looks nice, 'fraid the rest ain't my style. Nice paint on the fat bob and Sporty tank

Some of those tanks don't appear to be "seamless"...........
