Post 2017 rides already?
Anyone out in this very nice for February weather yet? I used the excuse of I needed something little at Home Depot this past Saturday to bring the big pig RC51 out of hibernation. I of course took a not so direct route there and back. It felt good! First time into triple digits and first third gear wheelie of the year :rockon:

I did however remind myself of February 1995. I wrecked my '93 900RR on dirty roads. Don't do anything too stupid today I said to myself.

I had both of my mine out. Had to run some of the old gas out and put some fresh stuff in. Plan on going out after work tomorrow while it's nice out.

I was out Sunday, felt so good to be back on 2 wheels.

Only down side to the ride was the damn scooter riders, they we're backing it into every corner, doing wheelies, and riding on the side walks. Be careful if you come across one, especially if it's orange with Tiger stripes.

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Had to meet the Good Q at her office, so I figured why not scoot-dogg it down there.. So I'm just minding my own business going down Red Lane at around 40-45, and some maniac (anyone going slower than you = idiot... anyone going faster than you = maniac) on a TuonoV4 goes ripping past me doing...oh..double that? :whistle: I give the Zuma the beans and rip into the sweeping left, dropping my shoulder and leaning HARD on the Kenda tires.. :giveafuck:

It was hilarious that on a <4 mile ride, I see Zach. Even better was the woman's face when I wheelied the little thing coming off the stop sign at the hospital. :shock:
