Greetings from a new member

Post by The Viking »

Greetings all,

I just yesterday purchased my first Paso.

I picked up a 1991 907i.e. Paso that appears to be in pretty amazing shape. 20k miles, seems well maintained and runs like a top. Unfortunately the dealer that I bought it from wasn't sure when the last time the belts had been changed, so I'm planning on making that a part of the winter maintenance.

I'm in the Chicago area, relatively recent transplant from Minneapolis, MN having only lived in Chi-town for 2 years now. I've riding for well over half my life, as I started when i was 17 because my parents told me that I could get a car when I could afford to buy it, insure it and put gas in it. So I bought a motorcycle and haven't looked back since.

Here's a pic of the new baby. Amazingly she still had the original owners manual and toolkit.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

That bike looks mint - almost like it just came out of the showroom. You must be very pleased, I know I would be !!

Re the belts, I don't know how 'hands on' you are with stuff, but have a read up and do them yourself - it's not difficult and you'll save yourself a load of money.

Thanks guys.

Mark, I'm actually fairly handy. The challenge is that we live in a condo now, so having a space to do the work is a problem.
