That makes 22 months in a row for a ride in Minnesota. Hoping for a mild day or two in January. Thanks to Global Weirding!
At least 30 months in a row here in NY, crazy but good.

Washed it. I usually wash it twice a year whether it needs it or not, but I think I may have skipped the first one this year 'cause it was out of action for so long.

Thumbs up i traded it in

if i were to list the problems u'd think me a liar. in the 4 months i had that jewel i had the "pleasure" to ride it 4 times. culminating in my dream machine catching on fire as i attempted to start it. yep, that's exactly what i said; something about the ECU and a stepper motor, 2nd one at that.....live and learn.......

Installed my brake light flasher today. Fully programmable for 36 different modes. Anything to increase visibility from behind.
