Hello from Cbus!

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Luke Merritt, 34 years of age, married father of three daughters, from Grove City, Ohio (just south of Columbus). I am a member of Grove City's local union 71 and am an underground cable splicer for New River Electrical.
This past weekend I picked up a 1998 Triumph Sprint Executive 900. It's in great condition, however it is filthy and needs some work. The paint on the tank is scratched and bubbling, the forks need new seals (came with the bike), the PO took the air box of and put cheap emgo pod filters on and changed the jetting so I'll be returning it back to stock, the PO cut the stock cans in half, gutted them and welded them back together, so I will be looking for something different because it sounds cheap.
I am looking forward to bugging everyone with my newbie questions!
Luke Merritt
