Yep, but I have a B1250, so I'll not be much help with the troubleshooting.  I'm in Dickson, TN, actually, but I ride to work in either Green Hills, or Cool Springs, (usually going through Liepers Fork -> Franklin.).

Meant to add:  Welcome, and Good riding to ya'!
See Ya'

Oh Good deal! I live in Mount Juliet and commute to Lebanon for work. Lots of nice little backroads in there :)

Wow, I bought my bike at Precision Motorsports in Mt. Juliet.  My Aunt and uncle used to own a good size farm out there, that the Govt bought and used some of to expand the interstate.

Basically they were the only one in the area that had a blue 1250.   :bandit:

precision is a nice shop, they were the only ones in town that had the ngk plugs for my B4 in stock. Walkin through their showroom is a big tease though there are lot of nice new and used bandits and gixxers up there i wouldnt mind taking home with me. :motorsmile:

Yea, I would go out there and visit them more often, however, they're way too far for normal trips.  Below is a link to a pic of my bike.

Well, there is a link below to the image of my bike. 


I was going to wait until the 1 year anniversary, but since my son helped with the pic, I couldn't wait.

Reason for final edit. Finally got the picture above to display
