    This is my first post here so I will tell a little about myself before posting. My name is John Fuller and I live in Davenport, Iowa right next to the mighty Mississippi River. I am 47 yrs. old, and I am a maintenence supervisor for a senior housing facility.

    I got into motorbikes this last winter and built 2 Nirve Switchblade Choppers which my wife and I have been riding quite a bit since the snow melted. It was a great thrill when both bikes started right up and ran down the road with only a couple of minor gliches. We have really been having a blast on these and get alot of attention.

    We mostly try to ride up and down the river because of the scenery, and sometimes I'll ride one to work if I don't think I need to haul any supplies that day. My wife took a couple spills, but no harm done. She's really used to riding now, but had never driven a motorcycle at all.

    We also bought a couple of Kustom Kruiser Roadsters to motorize next winter, so last weekend we built a shed in the back yard to store all the bikes that were taking up room in our house.

    Anyway, glad to have found your forum, and I hope to be able to interject some useful information from time to time.

    Peace!

    Welcome to the forum, I bet the ride along the river has got to be cool. When you build a shed to store your bike's you must be a true motorbicyclist and you have come to the right forum. Glad you joined us:D
