    Default Hello Bikers

    recently had come across this forum and i like it !
    would like to know about bike events , organized bike trips and bike gatherings
    I hope will do some extra biking this summer !
    i have few bikes i am using according to trip or intend of use
    one of is F650GS
    although i am a newbie on this forum - I consider my self experienced biker
    had few rocket bikes like CBR and Ninga in the past ! - never again !
    I bought f650 in 2001 and still ride it !!!!!!!!
    I crash it twice - riding in London ! - ( Light collisions ) fix it and ride it again
    do not intend to replace it !!
    I like motocross
    A single thumper is my bike !
    I ride entire year all round - rain , cold , fog , mud even snow
    yes i do have a car ! but i like bike !

    F650gs 2001

    I month ago when covid 19 just started I bought second F650GS for my brother to replace his Yamaha virago 1000 - horrible bike
    in extremely bad shape !
    the bike mist have been out on the rain for its entire life !starting to rust everywhere !
    so we striped all down and respray !
    engine, frame and all its attachments
    Before we buy we went and had a look ans started the bike ! it would not idle ! had to keep it on the gas to keep it ruining!
    the seller suggested because the battery was flat and we needed jump started from a car battery however with jump Leeds on the bike would not idle
    i assumed the bike has been sitting for a long time and probably needs to run in for a while !!
    after we got it home which we should NOT but did we find out it has been involved in head on collision cus the forks were bent !
    that did not put me down ! i bought used forks and yoke from Ebay in good condition !
    the original fork were badly pitted so it needed replacement anyway
    i also bought a used ABS pump and wiring harness as the bike did not have any as original !!!!
    surprising to me ! one of reasons to buy this bike was the ABS system ! and that particular one did not have one !
    so we are installing one now !
    so far we are starting to assemble it together !
    I did mention in inro I am Bulgaria native !
    The Ebay seller happened to have a Holiday house in Bulgaria so he was so exited when i met him He let me have a ton of parts for free with the front forks
    now i have a spare ABS pump coils side plastics wring harness spare front wheel with disk and tyre and ABS sensor
    and some more stuff !
