    Introduce yourself and post a pic or two in members rides

    This section is dedicated to new users. Tell us about yourself, we're all friends after all, right? Try to put pictures in the members rides section instead of in here so it doesnt get too jumbled up, that way when you mod your bike you can add to your thread in the members rides section, so a year from now people dont think you're new!

    Just signed up!

    Wow, what a nice suprise! I happened upon this sight when one of my other hawk sights wouldn't load up! Anyway, it's nice to be here, to see and read about some unique bikes out there. I'm finishing up my 3rd incarnation of my '89 Hawk (it's a long story). Just a tease...Vortex clip ons, RC51 race upper and lower, F2 front end,Vfr rear wheel conversion etc. I'll get's some pics loaded soon. Again, great to be here!

          Hello from Central Indiana

          New member here. I stumbled onto this site as well after researching a 1989 Honda Hawk that's for sale in my area. I don't currently have a Hawk but may soon.

          Seeing that I am now a full-fledged/dues-paying member , can I ask some advice from you Hawk owners?

          I remember riding a friend's Hawk several year's ago (when I had a Yamaha FZR 1000), but don't remember much about the ride, power, agility, etc. I've got a pretty good line on what looks like a well-kept Hawk close to me (doesn't run--dead battery), but I'm concerned about the size/power of the bike (or lack thereof). I'm 5'9" and go about 200#. Should I be concerned? I'm afraid I'll look and feel like a gorilla trying to ride a turtle
          My Hawk might not be powerful, but she's slow.

              Hello all.
              I have been reading this site for some time now an finally joined it. There is so much to read and lots of helpful information. I will send pictures of my Hawk once the horrible British weather clears up.
              I have many questions which I will have to organize in various forums. Hope to speak to you all.

                Following on from Doc's announcement about new members I am introducing myself to the HawkGT Forum.
                I was given the forum details by one of your other users; Brewsy, who appears to have gone missing of late (I'm going to call his manager in London to find out where he is. He should be in NY). He had been banging on about these machines for years when he was in London and then, when I saw him in December, he told me all about this place. At first I was sceptical and thought about my V Twin, an Aprilia Factory Erre, and wondered why the effort he described was going into the Honda Hawks. Well now I know. After having seen some wonderful examples of engineering skills (or not) on this site, I decided to register and have a read. Further to that, I am now looking for a Bros650 to work on and use as a part time commuter (the Factory has been my usual morning blast to London) and get rid of the recently acquired Kawasaki ER5 P.O.S.. It is the most uncomfortable motorcycle I have ever straddled. I do have a very comfortable bike in the shape of a BMW R100RT 1989 model. It is currently part way through a rebuild and should be done by midsummer. That is know as the Red Baron to me because it's big, red, German and gets everyone's attention quickly.
                So the plan here is to get myself a Bros and create a sports bike for the road or track or both. I've seen the general paths taken with these conversions so far and will be looking to emulate some of that. Alternatively, I may start thinking of some other ideas and if they turn out okay, I'll let you all know.

                Now then, where will I find that bike?

                  Brewster is alive and... well... um- Well he's had a Hawk for a couple years now and probably clocked at least 6 hours on the thing! HA! I'm just trying to motivate, here...
                  He's got her all cozied up in a 24 hours garage/workspace so it's understandable why it's still in pieces- it's hard to find the time, you know?

                  Ahhh, just kidding, we've become pretty good friends and he used to be on the forum a LOT.
                  Recently he hasn't been on for months and hopefully he gets his bike together.
                  Everyone PM him if you remember him and tell him to get his sh*t together and ass in gear!

                    Thanks HawkLer,

                    I'll try and get in touch with him again. Give him a push along and tell him the weather will change soon and he'll miss out if he doesn't start spannering soon. If he needs his tools, let him know he's left a few in my garage at home and his torque wrench needs calibrating.

                      Hi All,
                      Just a friendly hi to everyone. I came across the site because one of my friends has a Hawk and had it being voted on as Hawk of the Month a little while ago. He ask me to check it out so here I am. I thought about getting a Hawk but haven't had good luck finding one. Hopefully I'll get some good leads from this forum!

                            Hi,

                            I've been in the Hawk scene for a very long time, but I'm new to this site. I hope these forums will re-motivate me to get back to moddin' my Hawk.
