Hi All,

New to the forum but not to Dukes, I've had a '98 ST2 a couple of years. I've been riding over thirty five years.

I'm an active member of the FJ/FJR Owners Club attending as many runs as possible with the Wife. (I own an FJR AE and I restored an FJ1200 3XW a couple of years ago).

It (ST2) had sat in my Dads workshop for many a year as he prefers twins of the flat variety.

Well it was pretty useless as a working motorbike when I went to pick it up, although immaculate to look at it was plagued with electrical issues, needed a belt change and an MOT.

Solenoid, battery leads and the correct battery for the single phase genny and it was put right.

Next I thought I'd look for some more "go" so some nice carbon pipes, DP performance EPROM and air filter got it just right.

Bar risers, Zero G screen and a Corbin seat sorted the comfort.

It's now a brilliant all round bike, in fact I enjoyed riding that much I picked up an ST3 too (which I've just broke the RHS handlebar clamp on) Grrrrrrrr.

Always loved Italian bikes as a kid but my Dad wouldn't entertain 'em.

I will be looking for a Multistrada in a couple of years when it's time to move on my FJR AE.

So I'd just like to say "hello All"!

Well done!

Always nice to hear of another ST being restored to roadworthy.

The Buell owners club / Italian event at Spillsby might be a short run out for you, Oct, I believe.

Cheers


Cheers - Frank
