Hello from Southern California!
« on: January 29, 2019, 05:48:03 AM »
Thanks for allowing me to be on the board! 

I started riding in '87 with a Ninja 600.  Have owned/ridden CBR's, Ninjas, R6, R1, FJR, Harleys, GS, dirt bikes, Concours, ST1100 and of course my all time favorite ST1300!

My passion for motorcycles led me into the motorcycle industry and I have been blessed getting paid playing with bikes in the last 18 years.

Having owned my ST1300 for many years, I have done my first iron butt 1000 miles / 24 hours on it, 5000 miles motor camping trip from Los Angeles to Madison, Wisconsin, & yearly ride to Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA for the GP's / WSBK events.

Thru my love for the the ST's, I have helped designed the PSR ST Highway Blades, under & over mirror auxiliary light brackets.  Current pet project is the dash shelf with 8 RAM ball mounting holes for the ST13. 


Charlie

Charlie. Welcome from the southwest of Victoria. I live roughly halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide.

It has been almost 50 years since I visited Cal, I was parachuting at Lake Elsinore late 1969.

Cheers!
