Hey! I’m new here, from Cleveland, Ohio and excited to be here and pretty much brand new to the motorcycle world. I’m pumped about finally being able to ride and hope that if I have some questions people might be able to help. Peace!

Don’t know how to edit posts on my phone here yet, but just thought I would say, I got my Honda Rebel 250 this past April. First bike, new rider. Feel free to drop any tips to me!

Hey Jet welcome! I'm south of you close to Amish country. This place has all the answers...I think. Anyway, lots of good info here for sure! Maybe one day you could join us here.

People come from out of state, come for the ride and scenery. All ages event. Once you get more proficient give this a thought. Lots of twisties and rollers, I try to include something worth seeing when you get there, or on the way.

Welcome. Have you taken a basic rider course? It's the best way to learn the fundamentals of riding.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Putting your bike year and model in your signature helps others help you!

I started one the Harley HD classes and was only able to finish the first day, I sprained my ankle really bad and couldn’t return to class the last two days unfortunately. I’m hoping to go back or at least do the state one.

Cleveland...go check out Seeger Cycle Accessories. He can import some awesome stuff for the Japanese bikes from the German outfit he's contracted with.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

No kidding!? Practically right in my back yard! I'll be sure to try and visit there, I'm still bent on making a Rebel Chopper.
