New to Connies Michigan!
« on: September 30, 2009, 01:10:00 pm »
Hello to all - purchased a 2000 ZG100 two weeks ago and I am loving it!    Live in South Lyon, Michigan with my wife, Mary.  Have been owning and riding motorcycles of one form or another for over 40 years!  When I met Mary I had a 1981 Virago 750 - which I never really "bonded" with, so I sold it about 3 years ago.  Mary kept bugging me about getting another bike, but nothing new appealed to me, then a friend came up with a 1978 KZ650!  I bought it sight-unseen and was delighted to receive a dusty, but almost stock, bike in very good condition!  We love it, but it really doesn't work for two-up long distance hauling.  I bought a W650 last January - also a fun bike, but still needed something we both could ride easily and I started looking at Connies.  This one appeared on Craigslist and I went to take a look at it - great shape, one prior owner and just over 37,000 miles - priced right so I bought it!    I have put over 500 miles on it already - and added a cruise control (magic!).  Also sold the "W" to a friend - so the Connie was "revenue neutral".  Joined COG (already a ROK and AMA member) so I'm good to go.  Looking forward to longer trips and meeting other owners!

Eric,  welcome to COG. Be sure to learn how to navigate the forum and website to get all the benifit you deserve. There are members all around you, with one in Livonia. Your AAD is a very active member and all around nice guy in Dean Westerman > dwester1@peoplepc.com <.   And there, now you know someone in COG. Bummer, it's getting cold up your way soon.

Eric, it was good talking to you at the Stockbridge all-clubs day. I'm the guy with the 99 that was parked kind of close to you. There is a RTE and color tour slated for the 18th with details on the calendar page.Hope to see you there.  Gil
