    Default Returning to the forum =D

    Aloha!
    The system didn't recognize my info anymore so I had to re-register. I 'think' I'm using the same screen name? Anyway I separated with my GS1100g and GSX-S1000F before moving to Oahu. I've been here 3 years, riding a 170cc 'scooter' and a Jeep Wrangler TJ, and now considering a proper bike to explore the island on.

    This was/is one of the best forums, and definitely was/is the best special interest group I've ever been introduced to. I learned so much from you all and absolutely loved meeting everyone either individually or at the rallies. There is just something about Suzuki bikes that has my heart, too. I'm happy to be back.

    Mahalo,
    Joe

    Forum is set up (by administrator who provides the service of his own time) such that it expires if not used in several months.

    When I was a tourist (with rental Harley) on the island, I noticed that all most all the Harleys (and Mustang Convertables) seemed to be tourist. THen I thought would be strange to live there and get a big road bike - on an island that is, what, 20 some miles across, and no road that goes all the way around.

    Welcome back Joe. It's good to see you back on the forum.

    We only met once back about 4 years ago I think, at the rally in Farmington, Mo. So you are forgiven if you don't remember me, but welcome back just the same.

    My son lives in Honolulu working for the V.A. Next time I get there I'll look you up.

    Aloha

    Welcome back.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"
