Hey...

First time caller, long time listener...

I finally joined and created a profile... I have used this site on my Wing many, many times... Been riding for over 40 years, had several bikes in my time... Currently have a Goldwing and an 83' mint Silverwing... Toying with the idea of picking up an old 750-four "superbike" to add to the family, I guess I like the older bikes of yesteryear...

One of my first bikes was a CB750 4 banger.... in 1970 ( I think)... I loved that bike. Took it for a ride from San Diego to the Canadian border and back, with a stop in San Francisco... great trip.

Welcome to the forum.
Your bike and mine could be twins, down to the new Tulsa Tall that I just put on.
Where in Indiana are you located?

Central Indiana, about an hour north of Indianapolis... Originally from Austin, 35 plus years ago but no more Texas ties now at my age... Like the windshield? I get a lot of comments about it, seems like most prefer the shorter screen... till the see mine and ask about it...

Reason I asked about Indiana is that my wife was born & raised in South Bend and we have a lot of friends there and in Indianapolis.

As to the windshield, I like the height better than the stock. It really does a lot with buffeting for my wife and I and think it makes it handle better as well.
I still haven't gotten used to it being further back though.
I've been known to bump my helmet against it when rocking it off the center stand. :D

Yep, been through (actually around) Kokomo on 31 many a time.

New Highway 31 really going around it now to the east, opened last year... maybe 2 years ago, time flys...

But, I really like your bike, did I say how good looking it is?
