newbie here also
Hello all My name is John I am from Rocky Mount NC. My 1st bike 30 years ago was a ,65 Honda 305 Dream, My next bike was a Suzuki 450 followed by an 01 Intruder Volusia VL800. I am looking at putting my grubby paws on a 78 GL1000 now that is in some need of TLC. I went by the Current owners today and snapped a few pics of the fairings and Saddlebags/trunk. If I can put my hands on this rig it has A Bates Clipper fairing as well as a Vetter windjammer IV. both are in need of parts. I have been on here about a week now have seen so much good and useful info be ready though I will be looking for some tutoring in the renovation of this bike.
I am pretty shore I can get it road worth in about 2-3 weeks but making her pretty again will take the off season to get her cleaned and primped
everyone Calls me Voodoo I am retired from the NC Army National Guard I am with the American Legion Riders Post 19 NC and I am the Post Commander of American Legion Post 19 Tarboro
look forward to talking to everyone

QM3 is not "lowly" to me, brother. I am a firm believer that the people who procure, transport and issue beans, bullets and band-aids are every bit as important as the end user. Either we all win, or we all lose.

Welcome to the forum. If we have another winter up here like last year, I might be joining you in your neck of the woods. Retired early recently and may be looking to move where I can ride more throughout the year.

Welcome aboard... thanks for your dedicated service...

Virginia, North Carolina (I suspect plenty of other places too) are pretty much suited to riding 12 months a year. We get a little snow here, near the coast, but the worst weather (in my opinion) are the dog days of summer... makes me want to buy one of those ice vests on some days... we also enjoy some beautiful scenery and historical sites to see...
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Welcome to the forum! I ride all year here in Arizona, but be warned if you move here it is way too hot in the summer to ride much during the daytime. you have to start out early to beat the heat!! If I had to do it all over again I think I would be looking at Texas! JMHO!

Welcome from the Deep Deep South, where we can ride most days - no snow, no icy roads, and no deer. Some days I dont go out, because it is raining a bit, but that usually occurs only at night :o Think of Camelot, and that is pretty close. ;)

Enjoy your GW, and keep smiling.
