Hi All,
 
  Bought a brand new White 2015 this Sunday. Put 20 miles or so on it riding it home, started off feeling a little shaky but started getting back into the groove towards the end. This is my 3rd bike, I've been off the bike for a few years after a nasty high-side crash. I need to ride some more and brush up on my skills. I took the MSF rider course after I got my first bike. I wouldn't mind doing that again, or finding a local group that does refresher skill building training.
 
  Started getting the itch to ride again last year after I saw this bike at the dealer. I was able to put it off for a while, but it hit me hard last week after getting a new job. I read through this forum and learned quite a bit both last week and this week. 
 
  Earlier this summer I decided it would be fun to learn to weld, so here's a pic of the welding cart I built:

I'm not going to bother posting a pic of my stock bike with the stupid stock license plate bracket on it, you all know what it looks like :-)

Good to know there's at least a couple other riders nearby. I'm out in Laveen.

One of the other reasons I got the bike was so that I would have an alternate means of transportation if my jeep was down for maintenance. Here are a couple pics of wheeling at Predator at Table Mesa.
 
Note: Thats not me beside the jeep, he's one of the guys spotting me through the line.
