    Hello everyone. I live in the Friendly Hills of Whittier, CA, near Los Angeles.
    I ride a 1995 Road King that I maintain myself. It has a Sputhe engine, now at 106", with a fresh, complete rebuild. Every inside is new except the cam and lifters, which I will change out shortly. I have new Red Shift cam and S&S lifters ready to go in.
    I am an avid photographer, and like to dabble in photoshop etc. Living in So. Ca. is great, because I can ride all year long. Although sometimes it gets really really cold, like down into the 60's.
    I was a commercial printer for many years, now I just work on the bike and the house. I have a great no-nonsense wife who rides with me sometimes, but does not go to events. (Hates the crowds. I love 'em)
    I am 65 and pretty mellow most of the time, and will lend a hand or advice, when I think it is needed. I can turn into a handful when challenged to do so, and my wife can verify that.
    Have fun, ride safe.

    Welcome from Tempe, AZ.

    I lived in Whittier as a kid, back in the 50s when it was a big deal being Nixon's home town. His brother had a drive-in we used to go to, which went belly-up about when we left generating jokes about the family's management abilities. Attended West Whittier Elementary and lived near a warehouse that, supposedly, stored munitions for use in Korea.

    Folks moved when dad picked up the rumor that a freeway was going in. I rode there once to find the old house, and the 605 runs behind the houses across the street.
