Heading to Nashville...

Greetings!

I guess for the moment, I'll be the newest guy around these forums. I have been avidly riding for a few years, but have yet to pull the trigger on a "real" one. Shortly after getting married, the wife was too worried to let me get the bike I really wanted - a fury - so she settled for a Vespa. Go figure, even now she realizes that was no bike for a bearded man.

Having been in full-time ministry for plenty of years here in Southern California, the wife and I are moving to Nashville in January. After learning we are not able to conceive, she agreed it's time to let me get a different kind of baby - my fury. While I haven't been able to pull the trigger just yet (we are waiting until after we move, and the weather is optimal), I wanted to get started on my preparations now.

I am hoping to learn plenty from all of you, and enjoy any wisdom you are willing to share. With the cash in hand, it is only a matter of time before I join the ranks.

Have seen plenty of nice bikes posted here. I am looking at buying new and ABS. Black is where my heart is - in fact, I am looking to make everything black (pipes, engine casing, head light, etc). If there is any guidance on suppliers on this, I would appreciate it!

Almost forgot, I have ridden plenty of bikes to know what I want. After riding a fury a couple times, I can't think of anything else I would want.

Welcome mate I too am going to go down the road of more black and less chrome. I have just over a week to go until my bike arrives and the first thing I will do is strip it down a little and splash the paint and powder coat around so I will be very interested in the advice you get on this
Ride safe

That's going to be a loong winter for you.
Be sure to where a good contrasting color with the black bike you will have.
And start saving now for the mods you want to do.

velociraptor intake (wire mesh left off); Cannella black riser; dyno tuned
Cobra 3" slips (baffles in); Memphis Shades pop top sportshield; iso-driver boards
Fi2000R, ~120 mls LED lights; C&C SportTour seat; Rebel Bandit ReFlash Hog

Thanks for the welcomes everyone!

@KenD - My wife was very active at Greg Laurie's church - until she met me. It's about 15 minutes from where I live and work. As an Outreach/Evangelism Pastor, I have long respected the work Laurie has done through the years.

@CurtisFury - Good to know! Some of my riding buddies out here were wondering how active the 'cycle community is out there. Can you tell me much about how long the riding seasons are? Is Nashville biker friendly (is anywhere?)?

@FuryousNurse - Duly noted. Thanks! Any suggestions on where to purchase new gear online?

Nashville is very biker friendly. I was stationed at the 101st and visited often. Great riding on winding country road NW of there. Also you need to visit the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville. We did a ride with 9 of us and the owner bought our appetizers. Pretty cool.
