New member here from the States, specifically New Jersey. I want to formally thank everyone who helps and adds their own perception.

Glad to know there are a lot of 3%-ers out here! Again, Thanks everyone!

-Matt

Sorry, I forgot to add that I currently have a 2007 Ulysses and a 1999 X1. Had the X1 for 4 years now and the Uly for 2 months. Great bikes.

Sweet ride, that X1. What mileage have you got on it?

The X1 has 40k miles. It's really a hoot to ride. The original owner made it comfortable with S3t bars and a corbin seat. I have it for sale since I purchased the Uly (wanted to stay a 1 bike family) but no rush to sell it.

Looks damned sweet, I still prefer the holes in the fuel cell cover.

My '99 X1 found itself a new owner at just over 25k miles. Impressive that the model "everyone knows" is the most fragile tuber has got that on it. 8-)

Yeah, almost 40k and the only problem I had was a stator and the paper gaskets! Pretty damn reliable I must say. I was lucky. The original owner worked out all the bugs before I bought it from him. Ever since it's been nothing but pleasure!

I'm in Columbus, approx 15 miles south of Trenton. Yeah, Rt 31 from Trenton to French Town and then back south on Rt32 is one of my favorite rides. Lately, I've been in riding north west Jersey up near High Point with a sport bike group. Great roads up there!

I'll find my way up to Easton and take 32 south. Thanks for the recommendation!

Haha, usually it's a good place for food. There are a couple of good restaurants there. Ends up being a "final stop" during a day of riding.

There goes the neighbohood. Who the hell let the guy from Jersey in here?!?!? :lol: Practically neighbors..born and raised in Philly. Glad I got the fuck out though. Spent plenty of time in Wildwood when I was younger.

Hang around a bit and laugh at the way these tossers talk. Shit, even after 4 years in the UK, they lose me sometimes. :lol: :lol:

Haha, My wife and I built a home in Raleigh, NC and waiting for jobs to get out of NJ. Too much corruption and BS up here. Also, they tax the heck out of you and you get no programs out of it.

My wife is originally from India so we're up for leaving the States as well.
