I totally get it now. :D

I got an extra rack of PD51A carbs from a local bike salvage yard just a few miles from here. I'm going to clea...

Hi, new guy signed in

Hi, I'm a new member and this is my first CB-bike. I'm 40 years old, working as a systems engineer in southern Sweden. The last few days I've been lurking the forum and it looks like a nice place to be. I have owned a Harley and a Honda RC30 but got tired of them pretty fast. I've always loved the s...
