Hey guys! I'm Tim from South Louisiana.
I'm 18 and fresh outta high school! and a freshman in college.
Unlike most guys my age i ride a cruiser and i absolutely love it!
I bought the my 2003 Honda shadow 750 in mid June with 11k miles on it and have since but around 7.5k miles on it, So i'm still relatively new to the biker world.
Unlike most kids my age my dream vehicle isn't some fancy sports car. no! my dream vehicle is a brand new Honda gold wing! My friends say "Dude, that's an old man's bike! get a crotch rocket!" however, i'd much prefer the nice comfy seat of a cruiser than practically laying on my jewels on my daily commutes!

I've been a lurker on these forums for a while and they have helped me through many projects from choosing a nice front tire, to changing my rear sprocket (which i absolutely love), to replacing my fuel pump and fuel petcock valve, and headlight bulb.
I find that i am more full of questions than answers and i have quite a few projects in mind so i decided i'd go ahead and make an account so i could ask questions directly rather than snooping through hours of posts!

Some soon-to-be projects:
4" extensions from scootmods
a nice plush mustang seat (with back rest. got a bad back from wrestling)
hyper charger
swap front forks for the beefier forks of the ACE
some new drag bars

Sorry for the long intro.
