New Blood from Arizona


Post by Nikotine »

Hey guys, finally getting around to writing one of these things. Long time listener, first time caller.

I had this elevator speech written up, pushed preview... post was gone. it wasnt that long, but didnt wanna re-write it. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

This is my second goldwing in a sea of other old jap bikes i've owned over the years. Attached are photos of my bike about 8 months ago when i first got it and what it looks like currently.

Great to be here guys!
