Yesterday on the 25th of June was not only the 1 year anniversary of Michale Jackson's death but it is also my 1 year anniversary of me picking up my 109 from the dealer. I was so excited to get to go for a ride with my wife yesterday to celebrate the milestone because as many of yo may or may not know that both my wife and myself have been deployed to Iraq since the beginning of December and returned home about three weeks ago. And while its been nice to be home we have been traveling to see family and catch up on things around the house we have not got to ride the beast. While taking it for a ride last night I fell more in love with this bike even more. I forgot how if made me feel. I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to ride and be part of a forum such as this. I just want to say thank you to everyone on this site for making this a great community. It has been a great first year and look forward to many more on the beast.
