Hello from Florida sorta...just returning back to the Bay. My nameís Carlo and Iím returning home after being in Florida for the last 19 years and wow have things changed. Iím relearning and reminding myself of all that California has to offer and all that I took for granted. Currently ride an 08 Buell XB12s Lightning. Itís a lumpy, low maintenance, torquey and stout thing thatís a blast to ride. Oh yeah...and incredibly cheap to maintain!

The best performance upgrade is upgrading the operating system of the operator. It is cheap, easy, fast, safe and works on every bike you will ever ride.
