I am a new member of the forum, and a new owner of an 03 S3. Unfortunately here in the New England area I will only be able to look at it in the basement for the next couple of months...
Here is a pic of the bike:
Nice bike - you will be sure to enjoy it once you get into the better weather.
Although you identified bike and location in your post above, it would be helpful if you could revisit your UserCP and enter your bike year/model in the 'favourite bike' spot and also include your location; those will serve as instant identifiers if/when you ask any questions in the future, without having to repeat. That info will always appear under your user-name in the left margin.
Yeah, I don't think i am going to make it all winter...
Its not the cold so much, but the snow and ice that is still on the roads that's scaring me...I have a feeling I will be bundling up and taking a few rides as soon as the roads are a little cleaner.
Yeah that's the plan...The roads were clearing up a little, now more freezing rain, snow slush today
By the way diyernh I actually bought this bike from a guy in NH. I picked it up on New Years Day. I found it on Craigslist. You might want to try to post it there as well. Congrats on winning the bike, it really sucks that you cant keep it...
Nice looking bike! I'm also new to the S3, got an '03 as well, but it's roulette green and has the faux windscreen (or whatever it's called) on it. I got lucky and found one that had been owned by a 56 year old woman since new - only 4k miles and immaculate
I still haven't put the seat on mine - I just leave the seat cowl on it - but as you have yours on, have you tried two up on the S3 yet? I've heard that they're bad for it because of the short wheelbase and the pegs are seemingly designed for midgets haha.
