I've owned nearly 30 bikes and have been riding for 44 years. Just picked up my first M109r. It's a 2008 in great condition. The majority of my riding has been on either sport or sport-touring bikes, but hip and knee pain side-lined me for a couple of years. I remembered a couple of Sportsters I had in the 90's that I put forward controls on and thought that perhaps the M109r might get me back on two wheels. So far, so good!
I'm one of those bike owners that enjoyed wrenching on my bikes more than riding them. Looking forward to gleaning many good tips from this site. Hoping to make a few friends along the way. I still have several friends from a GPZ1100 group I belonged to in the late 90's even though we have all pretty much moved on to different rides. Though I am not an expert on M109r's, I've been working on bikes almost as long as I've been working on cars and hope to help as much as I need help from this group. Thanks all!
