I'm glad to be here on the forum. I recently had my first bike given to me by a dear friend of mine - a 2001 VT600C VLX. It has 45k mi on it and is stock aside from old saddle bags and a K&N air filter. I haven't grown up around bikes and have only ridden for a month now. I'm also a weenie and don't have a whole lot of mechanical experience aside from oil changes. I'm a wicked fast learner though. I'm looking forward to being in a community of knowledgable riders with tips and advice to share. Thanks for having me!
