noob to bikes....call me plennie

just wanted to say hi to all you guys in the forum. i take it this is mainly a crotch rocket oriented site...thats pretty cool, but not exactly my style. i dont currently have a bike to call my own yet, but prospects of getting a late model cruiser are pretty good. im gonna take that class at awesome cycles with bones in a few weeks.... hopefully i'll have my bike by then. well, now that i have kinda intorduced myself, im out. peace.

Re: noob to bikes....call me plennie

that is cool. i used to ride dirtbikes for about 5 years then had to get my wrist screwed back together in 03. mom didnt like the idea of me on 2 wheels so i had to sell my bikes. now i am getting into bikes again and am tirelessly looking for a big bore cruiser, im tired of driving my truck, its too slow and eats entirely too much gas. well, as far as knowledge of moto goes, i could be some help to people if they need any, feel free to ask. thats about all i am good for i guess. either that or 4x4 suspension set ups/ drivetrains. im out. peace.

By reading some of his previous posts, I think he's serious.* I could be wrong.

Re: noob to bikes....call me plennie

plennie, remember wheelies on the prairie automatic? To bad you couldnt turn that thing, you could ride those forever with that belt transmission. My skinny could even get the front tires off the ground.
