  • Here I Go Again

    Good Morning All,
    It been 5 years since I last rode and just picked up a 2008 Road Star. The hardest part is waiting for the damn NYS DMV to send me my plate and registration while walking past the bike everyday for the the last 10 days! I used to ride an old 1977 BMW R100. Wish I had kept it. Rode a Moto Guzzi Calfifornia for a few years and found that getting quality mechanical work wasn't possible in the Rochester, NY area. I did go out for a short spin with my old plate and picked up a pebble in the drive drive area. Can't find any information on how to get it out easily so figured I would join a forum to see what people do. Looking forward to meeting a few of you! I usually take off for the Finger Lakes region, running down the valley of a couple of the lakes before heading home. Anyone in the Rochester area who would like to join would be welcome.....

          It was rattling around and is now gone....second test drive.
          I was surprised how easy it was to pick up. It was a sparse scattering of gravel from a road that T 'ed which had be refinished with fresh gravel....something to be extra careful about. I guess no riding in gravel pits!!!

            I've had a hole in ce ter of belt from rock... Belt still worked but I replaced.... If you have both upper and lower belt guards it's not frequent you will get rocks in there.. But I try to never ride on Gravel lol

              I ride an ‘’09 and you can’t beat the FI bikes. No matter the temperature, it’s turn the key, thumb the starter and just go.

                As Bikerron said, one of the benefits of a fuellie is just hit the starter button and go!
