Certainly not new to riding, but I did just buy a really decent 06 950 Adventure!
It's had all the right mods done to it (just 19,000 miles) and I am now starting to add the right protection and farkles.
First up is a black dog skid plate, some wider pegs (maybe pivots?), and some risers.
I'm a web developer so naturally I had to blog about it - right? I bought a domain that matches my license plate (http://aufroad.com/so-i-bought-a-bike/) and will be using that to document my rides as well as my upgrades.
Anyways, I just found the site, joined and thought I'd introduce myself.
oh, and my name is Mike
