Welcome. I am new to the site as well and I can't get over what I have learned so far. I have found just reading different posts will help with the majority of questions you have and failing that the guys on the forum are like having a motorcycle encyclopedia at your finger tips. Lots of info on 175'sJust to say hi, I'm from the UK. I have 2 CD175 Slopers, one much prettier than the other! I'm completely new to all this, decided I wanted a bike and really like these little guys and have ended up with 2- so wish me luck!
