Hi, all. I was very active on the forum a few years back, but life got very busy and involved very little motorcycling for the last 5 years. I usually ride to commute or kill time, but for the last 5 years I was working like a dog 3.5 miles away from home in stop and go traffic, had a *completely sane* girlfriend, and adopted a dog. Thus I shrank back into the shadows without saying goodbye and let my account expire.
Anyways, I'm back. Just changed jobs and I'm working as a professional motorcycle mechanic. I started turning wrenches on my own bikes and my '82 R65LS is what made me want to be a mechanic. Feels like I'm getting back to my roots.
The commute is pleasant and the beemer is starting to rack up more miles. I need to turn a set of pistons for the ATE calipers and replace at least the upper brake hose, but she's moving along.
P.S. if Monte is still kicking around he'd be glad to know my soul has a little more Texas in it!
