    I was looking for the manual for my 1997 RSTD and stumbled here.

    Sadly, the manual is not available here, but I found a site and purchased a download.

    This awesome site came up when I was doing some RSV reviews prior to purchasing. I remember bugging FREEBIRD with several questions and was a proverbial thorn in his side. All this BEFORE I joined, which tells you the quality of the people on this site. Getting answers without a second thought. Thanks Don, if not for you I wouldn't say I'm a proud member of this site!!!

    I met Don at the 2000 VTS Rally in Somerset KY. Kept in touch periodically since.

    Bought a first gen that didn't run and was searching the net for info on how to fix it. Whala... There it was. After the trial period I joined up. Been a member ever since.

    Cool Re: How did you find VentureRider.org

    Google is my friend. While searching for louder pipes for the 08 Venture I had recently purchased I stumbled across this forum, been a member ever since.

    I'm surprised I haven't responded to this thread already!

    Looking back over the posts I see there are several "Expired memberships" as well as a number of "Guests". Would be interesting to know what happened with those folks.

    Anyhoo, I found this site in 2006 right after I bought my '87. I was getting the E-4 (or whatever it was) code on my shock air controller. Found the answer here and made the fix. Been an active member ever since although it's been several years now since I've owned a Venture.

    Met a lot of great people from here and look forward to meeting more in the not too distant future as my wife and I embark on an 8 month tour of Canada and USA (pulling a 5th wheel) starting August this year.

    The cascade of handles is like reading the past. So many say they are lurking, it would be nice to hear from them again. I suppose some of them have moved on to other bikes by now. Getting back to the original poll it was a search engine that brought me here after buying my 83 many moons ago. This place fits into my sanity or insanity depending on how the day goes. Don, you have done good in keeping this site friendly since the beginning.

    I was using the old Google machine trying to repair my 1st Venture. Lurked and read a lot of fixes before joining. Dumbest move I made was lurking for so long. Best $12 I've ever spent.

    My RSV is the first bike I've owned in 35 yrs. This was after weighing my wants and needs with the dollar amount I had to deal with. (Fixed income means smart dollar being spent.) The search began by Youtube and rider opinions etc. Venture Riders showed up in the search. The result was a 2009 RSV and a membership with riders. I'm a happy guy.
