I could swear I've done this before...

Good day to you fine people. I've been a long-time lurker here... I feel like I introduced myself when I first joined the forum, over 10 years ago, but the system shows me with 0 posts.

I bought a 2006 500R brand new, and as of today, have a whopping 3400 miles on it. Originally purchased to ease the cost of my 40+ minute commute, I found the stop-and-go traffic unbearable with the sheer number of morons trying to kill me. I'm a video game freak, so I don't get on the bike often for leisure, as the mileage shows.

I've recently moved closer to work, so I've gotten to riding the bike a bit more. Even though it hasn't gotten many miles, I've been pleased with my purchase, and the learning experiences I've had working on the bike I think have helped me expand my horizons.

Now it's off to the troubleshooting section. Maybe I'll find the info I need, maybe I'll ask a question. Who knows?

Anyway, thanks for listening to my little ramble.

Welcome back! Those 4 wheelers are getting worse and worse at trying to kill us 2 wheelers, the country really needs more/better driver training before giving out licenses. But awesome you're getting back on it!
