Well, I've been a member of this board and was prodded by another member that I met @ the ROT rally this past weekend to finally start posting.

Little bit about about me, my name is Joe, I'm 34, single (thus my ability to buy toys and keep them), Systems Adminstrator and own an '02 Indigo Warrior that I bought second hand from a guy who kept it in mint condition and had only put 2200 miles on it in 3 years. I myself have put 22,000 miles on it in just over a years time. Is it me or do others have trouble getting mileage out of their rear tires? [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif] In those 22k miles, I'm on my 6th rear tire and 3rd front. What can I say? The Hill Country roads are hard on tires!

Not really sure if I should say 'welcome Joe' as it looks like you've been around for quite a while, how's about 'nice to finally meet you' ? Welcome to th boards anyway, 22,000 miles in a year? That's some pretty hard riding, I suppose that you guys have the weather for all year riding over there.

Yes, I have been lurking for awhile now. I was pre-occupied with racing Personal Watercraft for awhile until the sport died. Now, I'm into riding all the time. I just recently purchased an '06 Yamaha FZ1 so I won't put so many hard miles on my Warrior. I'm to the point that I've dragged frame on my Warrior through the twisties enough so I decided to split the abuse between bikes and put more of the "cruise" back into my Warrior riding.

Brit Warrior- Yes, we do have nice temperate weather to ride in for most of the year here in Central Texas. There is probably only a month or two around Feb. that it becomes a might too chilly to be out riding.

Welcome to the posting madness, Joe. I have a problem with rear tires too. For some reason, I have to change it about every 2000 miles or so. At 18k, I'm due for #9 in a few weeks.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]

Welcome aboard, belatedly, and congrats on your well used Warrior, judging by your post and the pic in your gallery! I don't think there's much chance of my scraping my frame, at least on purpose!
