    hey folks - just thought I'd let you know if any of you are in the SW US, you're not alone!

    There are several XJ owners here in the Phoenix area, as well as New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and So Cal.

    If you're in the Phoenix area and want to go for a ride, or just have an questions about your bike, I'd be glad to help.

    I'm out in the E. Mesa/A.J. area. Dean just got a new job and moved to a new house and bought a new Kawasaki so he's pretty busy.

    There are some good wrecking yards in S. Phx that have lots of parts but most of us use ebay for parts since it's more convenient than driving downtown.

    Hello all, I live in Albuquerque, NM and we have a pretty sweet motorcycle salvage yard here, I know I have a 77 KZ1000 and a 83 XJ750 SECA and I think I keep those guys in business.

    I'm holding it down up here in flagstaff. Picked up my 650 less than a year ago and I'm still working out some mechanical kinks while trying to be creative with my mods. Best thing about the snow is it keep me working and dreaming of spring time.

    Got a brother in Yuma that knows them fairly well. We have a mutual friend out in Mesa, I expect he'll be visiting him sometime soon. Might be able to swing by. I'll ask him tonight.

    Another Colorado rider here (well, I will be in a month or so- counting down!)

    I'm south of Denver, in America's largest planned community, Highlands Ranch. :roll: Good news is that we're very accessible, bad news is that it's boring. But boring is good when learning to ride a bike, I suppose.

    brand new colorado rider here. Live near city park/downtown area. Got a beat up old 1980 xj650 that I'm half-excited about and half-dreading having to fix up every time I ride it. Used to live in Phoenix (way to hot) and los angeles (way too expensive) and I think that CO has pretty much perfect riding weather for most of the year.
