New guy!

Hey all. Just picked up my first rideable bike. Haha made the mistake of buying a gl1100 that needed “work” yea ok....

Anywho. Just pick up a 1981 Kawasaki 440LTD. I’d never ridden a bike before. Jumped on and it felt amazing. Got my permit today. Can’t wait to ride more!!!

Did my first change. Grabbed some high temp paint and coated the pipes. Aside from the seat that was the ugliest part of the bike.

Before


After

First bike I’ve ever ridden so I can’t comment on belt drive vs chain drive. Haha
