Cool I once was lost... BUT NOW AM FOUND

I've been... away, so to speak. I spent countless hours and dollars on these machines when I first got into it back in 2008. I then turned my focus to music and drumming and the art of creating. I went and met a girl I plan to marry 10-10-20 after our 11 year engagement. She took my entire focus and I fell away from the 1100s. I never parted with them, but I did let them sit in a shed that recently had the top blown off from it. They have been neglected and now the bug has risen to resurrect my babies. I cannot for the life of me stop thinking about what needs done to get them back to tip top shape. So with this, I say hello again to all my old friends and those yet to know me as I regain some of which I have lost and pursue the great gift of cageless motoring once again.

Welcome back! I had a similar experience like you have-met a girl and forgot about my bikes as they sat in a storage unit-maybe started the bikes 2 or 3 times a year-rode 1 or 2 times to work-then I woke up so to speak-realized I was not going to have wife #3 so I made a break from it. Started to have fun again and realized family comes first. The relationship with the girl mentioned ended up in a courtroom and took a big weight off my shoulders. Now I'm happily single again.
