Hello all - long time rider (bought my first bike, '92 Nighthawk in July '93) and recent discoverer of MF Forum.

I've been posting and replying on Reddit.com/r/motorcycles for a few months and have been an on again, off again reader of ThumperTalk since buying a '99 Yamaha XT350.

Somewhere in between those two, I felt it would make the most sense to have a '97 VFR (at least that's what I told my wife) :)

I'm in desperate need of help with the XT as (long story short) it appears to have a bad CDI unit and the only way to test that is by swapping it with a known good one. I'll post more detail in the dual sport forum when I'm allowed.

Anyway, nice to meet y'all.

Welcome to the Forum. We have some great mechanics around here and hopefully one or more of them can help you out.

Welcome from New York. Was just in your neck of the woods. My dad lives in Diamond Springs
Ah, Diamond Springs, the gateway to Placerville or is it to Redhawk Casino! :)

El Dorado Hills is fairly similar, but not quite as rustic. Love it here.

I spent a week in Rochester NY one night -- most humid spot I've ever been in. Seriously, it was a nice place, but the heat was pretty stifling. At least there weren't any mosquito...oh wait.

99% of my time in NY has been in Manhattan for press tours, back in my High Tech PR days. Now, I sit here in my home, as a chief marketing monkey for an automotive website.
