Attention Newly Registered Members!

Postby JohnBG » Wed Feb 10, 2010 11:36 pm

Attention Newly Registered Members:

Welcome to the Soviet Steeds Collective! :D We're glad you decided to join our little corner of the world wide web.

Take a moment and do a few things so we don't have a bucha faceless, nameless folks here. :wink:

Please click on the "User Control Panel" near the top of the page and click on the "Profile" tab and fill in where you are from, your birthday and your website URL (if you have one) and other information.

Then click on the "Edit Signature" link on the left side of the page and add a signature. Put the year make and model of your rig somewhere in your signature, this is handy when we try to answer any tech questions you have (we don't have to ask ya what year make or model).

Cick on the "Edit Avatar" link on the left side of the page and upload an avatar. The image must be less than 100x100 pixels and no more than 20K in size. If you have a picture but you don't know how to downsize it, you can send it to me and I will fix it for you.

Thanks,
Your humble site admin...

Then it's "Mission Accomplished" !!

We have a new puppy in our home, a little chocolate and tan Miniature Pinscher. One night while looking through SS posts, she saw the "bug" and attacked my laptop screen trying to eat the bug. The more I laughed, the more she tried to "catch" it !! She'd try, look at me with that puppy "whadehell ?" look, turn back to the laptop and try to catch it again. :D

Add me to that growing list! I’ll be scrolling down thru a post and all of a sudden I catch movement outta the corner of my eye, then I remember I’m on the SS forum and it must be Ol’ Mud Pie… sure enough!

Gene just cashed my deposit today, so I guess I better check into this insane asylum! My new 2010 patrol will arrive end of sept (or so). Just want to say thanks for all the info i read here. I live in Ft.Lauderdale, FL. and work as a sailboat rigger. The Patrol will carry my chair and tools nicely during the week and off to the Everglades on selected weekends. It seems nuts right now, but I can't friggin wait!

Read every thing you can!
Then you want to take it very slow.
The result is a great kick in the a$$!

Oh buy the way... Listen closely to Gene and do what he says.

AND PLEASE add where you are from and the year and type motorcycle you have, especially when posting in the Nut-N-Bolts section. Plus, there maybe someone in your neck of the woods that can ride over and help you out...
