NEW HAMPSHIRE NEWBY

Postby William Lugg » Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:46 am



Hello to all my fellow wing owners/riders. Bought my 2012 this past June and rode it 12K miles before putting it up in December. I'm on the doorstep of retiring from the Army and have been an MSF rider coach here in New Hampshire since 2004. Have a three week trip planned for August 2013 with the wife. She's a great partner to ride with. Love my new wing. Would like to make a few changes to her and hoping some of you will be able to provide some advice. I already posted a question about painting the black out side panels, bags and rear panel. Hope someone can assist. look forward to talking with you all and hopefully can meet many in the near future.

Vin :D

Thanks for the welcoming guys. I look forward to communciating with you all and learning a bunch of stuff about my wing.

Vin

ps: Please call me Vin (Vincent) when I registered I didn't realize that William would show up as my name. William is my first name but I go by my middle. Didn't want to confuse anyone when I sign Vin. I know I'm complicated.

Thanks very much for all the kind words. littlebeaver, maybe we'll meet one day. One of my kids lives in San Antonio. I've spent many years attending schools and conferences at Fort Sam Houston. I am in the Army medical corp. Will retire in 29 days. Thinking seriously about riding to Texas to visit him and an old Army buddy up in the Dallas area, in the August time frame.

Yep Fort Sam Houston, I know where that is, As young children we would run out front of the house and look down the street whenever we heard that big boom sound, it was usually on the 4th of July, see, Fort Sam would shoot off fireworks every year and we had a great view of it from the front of the house..My Grandfather was in the Med. field as an assistant of some kind during the second World war and had been to Fort Sam as well, My brother John was placed there after coming home from Viet Nam, parasites had eaten up parts of his liver and pancreas from the water over there from what I understood and this made him very sick...But he got better..If your in town call me or pm me and we shall get a taco out at Las Palapas Mexican resturant on Broadway and 410 on the frontage road there out near the airport....I love there food..My gosh I'm all hungry now..The flour tortilla's are so good, Hot soft and homemade and just to die for,,,,I have the diabete's :shock: and I'm not supposed to eat this stuff. But...I need it man. :shock: ...Nothing better than coffee and hot homemade taco's in the morning to start your day..OMG :shock: I gotta go get some now..Bye... Oh we live out just north of North Star Mall north of 410..

Hello vin and welcome from the U P of Michigan You already put on some serious miles in the short time you have had your Wing and judging from that you must enjoy that bike, nothing wrong with that. Just glad we have another member that loves biking and also has good taste in bikes.

Thanks bustedwing. Yep, I usually put on about 12-15K a year. Love riding. I wish the wife enjoyed it as much as I do. She does enjoy it just not as much. I've heard that Michigan is a great place to ride.

I have to expand on that thought - because, EVERYWHERE is a good place to ride. Welcome to the forum, Vin.

Yes, Vin, Michigan is a great place to ride with beautiful scenery and greatful people to talk to you at every stop. The length of the riding season depends on your toughness, if you can handle the cold, you can ride that much longer. But most of us just look forward to an early spring.

If you make it to my area I will buy you a cup of coffee, and depending on timing I might even ride a few miles with you.

Howdy Vin
Congradts on the wing and soon retirement! Thank you for serving!
I was back in NH in the fall of 2011 for a couple months. Got to ride the roads I grew up riding on again, from Milford and Amherst, worked at Nashua Honda, 1976-77 when it was on Round Pond(ice races when frozen) just @ 1/4 mile from the present location. I went through Barrington several times to go see my mom in Somersworth.
Have you stopped in to Venco Wings up in Louden? Jim and his wife are good people. They carry a lot of accessories and will order if needed, decent prices too. I stopped by there to get a replacement CB mast before I left in mid November '11, it was @ 42° that day and still snow on the ground from the Oct 30th dumping of 24", sounds like you may be getting that much today! Just remember, Feb thaw is coming! I remember getting the snowmobile suit on and going riding once the roads cleared and it was above freezing in Feb! Had to go for a couple hrs ride!

Keep warm! Enjoy the wing!

Hi Newday,

I know all the areas you're referring to. I grew up in Dover. Did you grow up in Somersworth?? What year did you graduate. I married a girl from there. What's your name, if you don't mind me asking.

Amherst and Milford.
My sister and her husband bought the old estate that is now a horse stables on green St at stackpole. They kept 25 acres of 145 to build a few houses on.
