Holy crap did that feel good. Chris posted a pic on Facebook - "Therapy is expensive, wind is cheap" and I could not agree more.

I went out to Romeo and back from Bloomfield Hills, first decent ride since I had the Fullsac X-Pipe installed and a new map from Fuelmoto, already looking better on oil temps - 228 vs about 250 on a similar day last fall.

I'm guessing a similar blood pressure drop as well, LOL

Glad you had fun Kosher. Got out myself, the Gsx started a lot easier than prior years thanks to a warm winter and God's gift....Sea Foam!!. Went only a few miles just to get the juices flowin. Going to attempt to ride to work tomorrow as long as no ice in early AM. How....Sweee...eet it...is!!:drool:

Short ride myself, LOVED IT, felt so good. Still working out some mapping issues but I'll get there, bike pulls harder with the mods by the butt dyno.

Got out after work today as well. Man did it fell good. Still alot of standing salt though!

Took a pic of my bike in front of the " Operation Iraqi Freedom" monument dedicated to our fallen marines. God bless the men and women who serve and have served and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice .Thank you!!! :pat:

I'm hating you guys today.

I got 3 hours of sleep last night, then worked a 13 hour day. Came home about 1630, do dinner, some online bills and catch up... gg to shower soon and it's 2100. I have to be back at 0200. and I have a long damn day Wed too.

Not too mention I still have to make an exhaust bracket and finish some other mods on the bike.

I saw a lot of bikes out today. Put about a hundred miles in. The wind was crazy at times. Blew me right over at a light! I had to drop my right foot and catch the bike.

Yep got out for the first time today took a few hours tooling around town getting all the old gas out of the tank stopping and checking things only had to replace one bolt so far and it was one of the ones holding the tail out on so nothing major. Also got a new battery dropped in and picked up some supplies to do an oil change. So friday will be oil change and detail depending on weather and to figure out a permanent way to attach this seat. I've got something brewing in my head and I''ll take some pics in a few days and take some suggestions on it.
