Apeman here -- just bought a '93
« on: September 13, 2011, 05:41:21 pm »
Hello all!  I recently joined the site, and have made a few posts, but just found the intro section.  I just picked up a '93 Connie in beautiful shape, with hi mileage (96K).  My experience with KZs plus reading the info here gave me the confidence to buy  a well used bike. 

I do all my own maintenance and repairs, having learned first at the knee of my father who was an amazingly capable shade tree mechanic (among other things).  I have been riding motorcycles off and on since I was 15, and I am now nearing 63, with no plans to stop riding anytime soon.  I have been a longtime member of and contributor to the KZrider.com forum, and own a stable of KZ750 4 cylinder bikes.  The one I used the most (before the Connie) has about 108K miles on it. (I will try my hand at attaching a picture, below.)  I ride regularly across the SF Bay Bridge from my home in Berkeley to my office in San Francisco. 

Great site here.  I have learned a lot from reading over the wealth of information stashed in the various hidden spots, and hope to learn more.

I have learned so much from the mistakes I have made.  1993 Concours, and three 1980-81 KZ750s.

Welcome!  The old KZ's are still super cool.

You'll love the Connie!  I bought mine earlier this year and my SO can't pry my butt off of it. :)

Hi Apeman,
Sorry but you get my once a week plea.  If you find you like the site, learn from the tech areas and want to meet like minded riders then consider paying back and joining the club.  This all does not happen for free.   There is a lot of COG not seen here at the forums.

smithr-scad,

I have already joined and paid my membership fee, more than a week ago.  Does your info show something different?

No it was a general plea to all new members.
I do not see your COG # in your profile yet.  That may show up as soon as the membership guy process you.  You may have to log out and back into the forum for it to show also.

Welcome. You can try logging out and back in on the Cog-online main site. If your processed, your COG number will probably be displayed once you log back in.
