I just signed up and thought I'd say "HI". My name's Ty and I'm in Newark, Ohio. I just bought my first bike...an 05 Midnight Star and rode it home in March. I have about 600 miles on it so far. It came with a Stage II Performance Kit on it, as well as some billet parts (ball milled mirrors, fender accents, shift linkage, shifters), flamed drive cover, star logo air filter cover, fat T bars, chrome grips. I don't have a pic yet (just cell phone), but I can tell I'm gonna need one. I've found it's more comfortable (longer, roomier) and fits better than any Harley I've sat on. Runs and sounds awesome. I'm looking forward to learning a lot more about it. I found this site as I was searching for an answer to why it backfires now and then, as I'm slowing down, coasting towards a slow turn and I blip the throttle a bit. I thought it might have something to do with the performance kit or more specifically the carb
jet kit that went in with it. I don't know jack about it (YET).
I look forward to talking with you all and getting to know you.
(by the way...Ty is short for Tyrone (after Tyrone Powers)(glad to get that out of the way)....thus...Tbone)
