Hello from San Francisco

Been lurking for a few weeks now, so thought it was time to jump in! New rider here, I got a gently (I think) used EFI Scrambler and so far have put on, oh, maybe 5 or 600 miles on it. So far so good!

It came from the dealership looking like this:

though I'm hoping to get it more like (Photochopped):

In the meantime, I just been practicing my cornering technique, cruising up and down Hwy 1, 35, the 280 south to San Jose and the 101 to San Rafael, slow figure 8s, dodging buses, jaywalkers, toy dogs...everyday is still an adventure and I hope it stays that way til the bitter end. I've already learned a bunch from hanging around here, so hopefully someday I can contribute something useful.

oh and until then, listen to my beats:

Welcome aboard. Always room for another NorCal rider.

I like your plans for the Scrambler. A bit more 'correct' in my eyes. Not that my eyes are particularly worth-while or anything.

Welcome to the site, I'm down the street, Palo Alto. Best place to ride to ride around the Bay Area is the Skyline area. Enjoy, your new toy.
