Hey all -
I'm a 22-year-old with her first bike, in the process of tackling the inherent problems that spring up when you buy a '75 as your first bike ever in late '08.
I've been interested in bikes for years; Mom extracted the promise from me that I wouldn't get any tattoos, piercings, or motorcycles until I graduated from college and had my own health insurance.... thanks to CIGNA, she can't complain anymore :cool:
I'm a nuclear systems operator "in training" up in New Hampshire. Got my degree in Marine Engineering, so I know a whole lot about gigantic marine diesels and their associated systems, but very little about working on motorcycles.:eek:
My bike is a '75 Honda CB360T, acquired from EBay this past October. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at the deal I got ($550) for a bike that ran without any mechanical problems that kept it from running. Now I'm wishing I'd bought something newer that was 100% reliable, but, hey, live and learn :p

Welcome to the forum.

It's always great to see a classic on the road. The old CB is a fun bike to ride. Take good care of it!

BTW, sorry to steal your intro title, PavmentRider
Hey, no worries! It's good to see someone else who is contending with the same issues that I am. It's a funny thing about riding cheap old bikes...you seem to run into a lot of Moments of Truth (e.g. okay, pleeease start now) and Rides of Destiny (e.g. okay, pleeease keep going now). But hey, I guess that's what comes with getting into an expensive activity at an age when funds aren't exactly plentiful.

Who needs food anyway?
