hey everybody im woody. i live in sausalito calif. i got back into riding a couple 2,3 years ago after a 20 year hiatus. my girlfriend got me back in the saddle, shes been riding over 20 years with only 1 minor accident, a hit and run, less than a year ago. my first remount is a '89 honda hawk. great bike... cept for the blown engine. it is, however poised and ready for repair with what i hope are all the correct parts readied for reassembly.... for at least a year now. yes there was an overlap. bought my 08 daytona675 last year in perfect condition. it was a buy and ride deal. until it wasn't. on my very first ride i experienced the regulator meltdown at the apex of the ride! i waited 6hrs for a flatbed to tow my ass out of there! this being an introduction i'll be going into that in the appropriate threads. regardless of any issues ive had with this bike i must say my daytona is an epic ride! the geometry is perfect for me, i turn my head and im in the lean. superb handling and the pull... strong, steady through all gears, solid pull all the way thru the power band. i love this bike, epic fun. electrical issues abound. i rode it for a month before it melted again. i want to get this done and i want to keep it. i know the lessons herein will get me there.
