Newb-E in Philly

Hi All,

I picked up an 04 orange Ex this weekend with 80k on the clock. I live in the heart of s philadelphia. I havent owned a car for the past 8 years living downtown but within the last month I purchased a house & took a gig in the burbs. An E seemed really the only right choice for the job.



The body and motor are in great shape.
The PO was a handy man of sorts and got dots of paint and saw dust every where. SO Immediately went into a deep cleaning mode. I need to pick up the bolt that secures the spare and an aux cable but otherwise I am good to go.

No modding plans yet but I am sure that bug will bite.
I come from a Jeep and motorcycle background so it is just a matter of time.

Here is my latest w.i.p. cycle. an 00 sv650 with a few tricks

I bought from a honda dealership

haggled a bit and got it for 12k with a comprehensive 1 year warranty.
They wanted near 14k.

I dont think it was the best deal ever but it was exactly what I was looking for and timing was an issue for me.
