    Noob from Ontario

    Good day all.
    First motorcycle, first day owning the epic of epic projects.
    Picked it up for next to nothing and I know nothing about it. Guy said he was in the process of working on it but lost interest so he just wanted it gone to free up space. He had gutted it and lost all the wiring.

    It's going to be a huge learning curve, but i've already learned a ton from this forum and now that i have my own for specifics, i can't wait to get it running.

    She's a 2005 but has had a rough life.

    Grateful for all you folks on here. Pretty nervous about this as i'm more of a bicycle guy myself. I'm amazed at how cheap TW parts can be, so hopefully it doesn't take too much to get going. Need to pad the post count so i can get some pictures up.

    Anyone else in Ontario, especially Barrie area who has experience on this stuff wants to reach out, there's always a cold one in my fridge for you.

    Steveko I was next in line to buy that bike if you didn't. If you ever decide to sell let me know. On the other hand I'm willing to help you if I can. I 'm just a little up north eh.

    Cheers and welcome. Can't wait to see pictures. I'd be interested to know how one loses all the wiring.

    Keep posting Steve and soon, if not now, you can share photos of what will be an interesting if not challenging project. Lots of free but sometimes priceless opinions here.
