    Just Joined from the Bay Area...

    Hello,
    Been riding and wrenching for a while now. I ride a cafe'd '67 Atlas built from a basket case and have a '72 cb350 rolling chasis on deck. Looking forward to lurking for a while and posting more when I get started on the Honda.

    welcome - I hope you read the read this.

    Using cafe as a verb is super lame btw. If you would have to pick a verb from cafe racer it would result in I racer'd that bike - NOT - I cafe'd that bike. Do you see what I am after here?

    Welcome...I haven't been out that way since 1990, but there were some great roads out there along the coast and up through the Sierra Nevada mountains. All I had to drive was a rental car, but it must be a real blast on the Norton!

    I see what you're after...but you obviously knew exactly what I was after so I guess the description works.

    Actually I think he was giving you the "new members read this" link and fumbled the ball.

    just because something works doesn't mean it makes you sound saavy. I am not about to suddenly insert "dope" or "Fresh" or "fly" or whatever outdated 90's youth lingo is still left rattling around in my brain into my everyday conversation no matter how much I want to because I would like people to think I am not mentally handicapped.
