Hello everyone,

Two days ago I became the proud owner of an 02' ZG1000. There are wildfires raging here in Oregon, ash is falling from like sky like it's starting to snow, and the bike is grey. So, her name is Ashley. Ashley went down pretty hard with the previous owner. The entire right fairing is completely gone, the right foot pegs along with it. A couple of nasty dents in the tank, but otherwise no worse for the wear. She's got less than 39k on her, she starts and runs like a kitten. It's is probably the best $600 I have ever spent.

The key that came with the bike has a COG keychain on it, which brought me here.

I'm gonna strip her down and go Streetfighter style. I've always been more into the stripped down bikes. That being said, I always had a feeling that one day I'd be a bagger. Best of both worlds?

I'm looking forward to my adventures with Ashley and sharing them with all of you. As well as learning of and sharing in he adventures you have with your Connie.

Mark

Welcome to the madhouse.

I live in Hood River and we are getting plenty of "free fertilizer" falling from the sky as well.  When the smoke clears and you have some time to ride, ping me and if time/schedule permits, maybe we can get together to get some miles in.

Welcome to COG!

I'm still waiting for the Yellowstone super volcano to erupt.
You should be safe.

Welcome Mark!  Sound like you got as good running Connie.
You're in a good region. I don't know how many forum subscribers are near you, but I do know there are a good number of active club members near you, and quite a few activities as well.
welcome again  :great:

Welcome!

Before you go Streetfighter, look on Ebay and in the COG Emporium.
The parts you need at available, and relatively inexpensive.

Ride safe, Ted

PS:  Gumby is your Area director and a fine guy. He'll help ya get into the group.
       But, don't "ever" let him suggest a Motel when your on a trip... <evil grin>  >:D

Better yet, make sure you check weather before you think about going on a long ride with Gumby   :-X
