    Default Arizona Residents - Check in

    Tried to search to find a simliar thread but couldn't find one. I know i can search the community and find members in arizona and message each and everyone one individually and see which ones are active but thats just excessive.

    So who is in arizona? I would love to meet some similar minded people. All my friends (Exception Pendulum) thought i was crazy when i bought my POS XS650 that didn't run and needed nearly every piece replaced. It now runs and i would love to meet up with some locals to ride & help molest our 2 wheeled friends. So how about a check in for Arizona residents? This state is filled with a ridiculous amount of riders (however usually the 20k 20 mile type who ride that sweet spot 2 week part of the year), but I know there are a few of us that actually pretend we know how to work on our motorcycles occasionally.

    So i'll start off;

    My Name is Marin. I live in Mesa (but spend a lot of time in Peoria/Glendale as well). I had been wanting to build a bike / restore a bike for a while and Pendulum started pushing me by throwing ads on CL every for a good 2-3 months... Finally pullted the trigger on an absolutely disgusting XS650 that had literally almost NO functioning parts. However the engine ran perfect compression on both cylinders, and just leaked / cracked covers. I just got it running recently and have started to put weekend miles on it (until i fix oil leaks i dont want to daily it, too messy!). I have been taking it down the bush highway quite a bit but would'nt mind going some other spots, and meeting some locals to ride with!

    I'm out in Queen Creek... Got a GS550 rat thing I've been working on. Just gotta sort my oil leaks out and build an exhaust, then it's time for the frame work to get done.

    I know there's gotta be some CCers in the E. Valley.

    I'll call Ram Jet later to confirm the reschedule, unless some one here can say for sure that it's on 4/15. Looks like I'll make it after all. Just waiting on shims for my valve job, and I'll be good to go.

    I'd be so down if either of my bikes were running.


    I just got a new job with a substantial pay increase so after I get some cash stacked back up I'll be getting both bikes done properly finally. I need to powdercoat my XS frame, get a new engine, fix all the mickey-mouse shit, clean the carbs again, and I'm back in business. My GS needs the carbs cleaned and some gaskets replaced. I'll probably focus on that one first...

    Still looking for bikes to shoot. SATCH and I are gonna get together for some photos in like a week, and once coachstorms gets his FXR finished I'll shoot that too.

    Im in CA because of the military, but my family lives right next to MMI and im there pretty often. What do you think of that school? Ive seen a few of the guys around and offer them to come to the house and work on their bikes and honestly, dont seem to know much. Maybe they just started or I am just cynical.

    A lot of those kids are only going to school to make mom n dad happy, and don't give a shit about learning. There's a few that are there because they're passionate about motorcycles though. Same goes for AAI, UTI, etc.

    I'm there now and I like it. You get what you put into it. I went in not knowing shit, and still don't know that much compared to someone who has been doing it for years. But built my first engine the other day CRF 150F (split cases, measured EVERYTHING, took trans apart reassembled) started on second kick. So you do learn a lot if you put forth the effort. However there are some retards there....ok a lot.
