I just came home with a new 2005 Cherry. It has been twenty years since I last rode. I first started riding in 1972 when I bought a 1967 XLCH. I have owned many bikes over the year including a '75 Super Glide and a '72 Kaw H2 among others. It was in '78 I bought my first Yamaha and loved it and bought nothing else. I sold my XS1100 in 1986 when I moved from Chicago to Albuquerque. So when I decided to start riding again I look to Yamaha and found the warrior. What a great bike!! I have been riding my new warrior for a few days and realize the I could use a riding class to sharpen my skills. Riding a motorcycle is not like riding a bicycle. I have signed up for a new riders course.
I have been reading the discussion on this site for some time and have some question I will be asking and opinions from the members.
I know exhaust systems are a personal choice but what VBAK would you recomend. I feel a pclll is almost a must because of the altitude. My home is at 5800ft.
BTW great site.

Bought my '05 Black Cherry last week and I am digging on it big time. The BC is one bad arse color! I can't wait to get out there and ride it. Can I ask what you paid?

Hi jimell, welcome to the Forums and of course back to motorcycling. As a Yammi fan you've selected the right bike IMO and took a good decision in getting some riding lessons to hone your skills. As to which VBAK, check out the member 'Churchkey', I reckon he sells the best kits as, after all, he is a Warrior rider and a veteran of this site. Good luck and ride safe.

hey there dude- congrats on getting back into motorcycling and a Warrior. your FIRST mod should be to become a 'site supporter'. judging by your first post, youll be around here for a while--- and asking ALOT of questions- ALL of which will be answered here, lol

PM Churchkey for the VBAK and check with Richie (i THINK) by clicking the site sponsor at the upper right hand corner of this site (motor sport super store)... hes aces and has great prices.

other than that- the search function is excellent and i would also browse the members gallery for pics/ideas.

welcome

I paid $9800. I have not had a chance to get to the MVD to get plates and title but that should be about $400 as new vehicle sales tax is only 3% in New Mexico.

Welcome to the Warrior support group. Your story is similar to mine.
Started riding in 71 gave it up in 86. 20 years later the warrior called me. The MSF class was a great refresher after the layoff. Also picked up somethings I never knew. Just ride at the level you are comfortable with. Every ride I get a little more in sync with the bike. From everything I've read there are 2 good choices for the Big Air Kit. Churchkeys and Patrick Racing. I went with Churches.

churchkey's or PR's VBAK, either will serve you well. I went with the churchkey's and am VERY satisfied with it.
