Hello all. I'm a newb to the forums, if you could not tell. I currently ride a Kawasaki Drifter 800 and 1996 Yamaha FZR600 (as seen below). I'm hoping to sell them come spring and get into a new Sportster. The FZR just doesn't fit my riding style any more and the Drifter was a good deal I could not pass up. I hope to learn a lot about the Sporters and be on one in a few months.

Thanks everyone!

I'm just south of Detroit in Southgate.

I LOVE the Kawi but I'm starting to hate carbed bikes and hope to be in a FI one soon.

That depends on the day. LOL I've been looking at the 883's and would hope to eventually use a big bore kit to make it a 1200 or 1250. But I really do like the Nightsters.

Can't blame you on wanting to ditch the multi carbs, you'll enjoy the Harley!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I'll be honest and say I love the Drifter. It's just that I hate letting the bike warm up forever and I'm more of a technology guy so I like FI better for tuning and everything.
