    Newbie intro

    Greetings mafioso members.

    I live outside of Boston in a little town called Sheldonville and have inherited a 2018 ZHP manual. I have a 2015 M4 and more vintage iron (trucks mostly) and motorcycles that I will admit including '96 BMW R1100RT that I've had for over 20 years. I went to M-School in Spartanburg SC after a year of ownership to learn how to properly drive the M4. My first love is really more on two wheels; dirtbikes and I have 3 but they, like me, are all old now. I've ridden motorcycles all of my life and still love riding but needing a hip replacement and arthritis have adversely affected my dirt time.

    My primary interest is antique trucks and I have a website, forum, and Facebook page supporting antique trucks with over 6,000 members. So I fully understand the value of forums and the need to support them with donations so they can continue to help the hobby, enthusiasts, and ZHP world.

    So that's my story. I will post another note as to why I am here seeking your advice and counsel.

    Best to all and thanks to Dane and all for this forum.

    Welcome! I'm the opposite, I've always loved cars and never really got into bikes. Not because I wasn't interested, but because I don't want to get run into and die or get paralyzed haha. I've driven a car with a bike engine (FSAE car with CBR600RR) and that thing was a hoot to drive, I'd imagine the straight-line performance would feel quite similar to the actual CBR600RR bike
