    Hello from Pennsyltucky!

    Hello, all.

    I've been lurking on this site for some time and finally registered today.

    I just got out of the Marine Corps last year and moved back home. Finding that going hunting for my favorite pour isn't as fun as it was when I was stationed in Southern California. The state-ran stores here in PA are lacking in their selection, IMHO.

    Anyway, /wave from PA. Good job with the site, Thank You. Guess I will start contributing now.

    Cheers,

    Bud

    Ah, the joys of living in a controlled state.

    Looking forward to it. What's your favorite pour?

    I tend to drink a good deal of Knob Creek and MM these days as a daily pour. I have found that I really enjoy PVW, but the pockets aren't deep enough. EWSB is always a nice pour, same with BT and Blanton's Single Barrel.

    So, in short just about everything across the board. Splash of water for the first of the day, couple of cubes for the second and subsequent drinks. Neat towards the end of the evening. Hell...just put it in a glass and slide it over.

    Interesting. That was me, circa 1993. Usually KC, but MM when I felt like a wheater.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but is that a V-Star in your avatar?

    Yes. V-Star 1100 Custom. The image is borrowed from the Yamaha web site. Mine differs from this in having a windshield, saddlebags and a backrest/sissybar.

    I've got an '02 650 Classic. 39" beach bars, rigid (over 4" lower), custom seat, extended the forks 2", gutted my own exhaust, re-jetted, removed the ugly "mustache" on the rear fender....it's a dream. Should be back riding in the next couple of weeks. Nice to know there's a fellow rider on here. Keep the shiny side up!

    Dizzie, he was screaming
    Next to O.P. who was beaming
    Monk was thumping
    Suddenly in walked Bud and then they got into somethin'

    Oscar played a mean sax
    Mr. Byers blew a mean axe
    Monk was thumping
    Suddenly in walked Bud
    And then the joint started jumping

    Every hip stud really dug Bud
    Soon as he hit town
    Takin’ that note nobody wrote
    Putting it down

    Welcome Bud,

    State liquor stores may not be the best, but it beats living i a dry county.
