Hello!

Hi,

My name is Mike. I've been a biker for 24 years now riding one sort of bike or another. I currently own a 2006 KLR 650 and a 1988 Harley Davidson Sportster. I'm big into adventure riding/trail riding or just like to get out when I can and put two wheels on the pavement.

I was invited over by VAtrader and I have to thank him for his kind words about my invention and myself. I never thought about getting into making motorcycle farkles until I created the Tank Vest. My main line of work is being a firearms manufacturer and a gunsmith.

I live in Inwood, WV and have a beautiful wife, wonderful daughter and three goofy German Shepherds. Anyone near me, please feel free to PM me if you want to go out riding or shooting.

Mike

Welcome Mike! Your tank vest is awesome.

Groan

on the request for the tank vest link... google is your friend. I'm unable to post the link due to the rules here.

We're catching up on our back order list now. I hope to have us back with inventory in the next week or so.

Thanks!

Retail is $149.99 plus $15 S&H domestic. International rates may differ.

We're working on a line of pouches but due to the demand, we have had to put our efforts into meeting the demand vs. making new items.

Welcome Mike, and sorry about the link thing, but as you've been told, we have a few rules to follow to keep it fair.. I'd like to have a silly link in my signature just to my little shooting sub-forum, but we were asked by management to keep the links in signatures out, and that included moderators..

Anyway, get a few more posts in and you'll be able to toss up photos.. Another hassle with the photo thing, but that's to combat spammers which were a really bad problem a while back..

So, again, welcome!! We have a good time here and while the few rules we have are sometimes a hassle, they're mostly meant just to make it easy on everyone..
