Talking New Owner

Hello there,

Where to begin...
I bought my '08 R312 in May against everyone's wishes.
I've been a lifelong fan of the brand.
Thanks to everyone's advice and instruction, I've completely dissembled and reassembled my bike with better parts, fluids, and lube.
Oh, and yesterday was my first trip (on a bike) up and down the blue ridge parkway...it was a very. enthusiastic. ride.

This is me pretending to be a photographer:

Video's will be coming soon...

Mixon

P.S.
BIG THANKS to Al at Design Corse for making my custom seat! I sketched a design, sent them to Al, and in a few weeks the mailman was knocking on my door. Al was a pleasure to work with and a genuinely nice guy.

I know that feeling about "everyone else´s wishes"! But when the passion is there, there´s no one that can knock you down, isn´t it?
