are you ready to pull your bike out of hibernation and is it ready to go? i was just looking at some pic's from last year and the earliest ones were taken 03/ 29/ 08, thats whe i started getting the 1200 wing ( didn't owne the 1500 yet ) and the cb450 ready to go while the wing only needed a tuneup, tires, and an oil change the 450 had the speedometer replaced, a left side cover put on it, mufflers , brakes, tires, front turn signals, and both brakes replaced. plus the oil changed and tuneup. the who song states the there ain't no cure for the summer time blues but i know a cure for the winter time blues

My bike is put away ready. All I have to do is pull off the cover, check the tires, mount the seat, and I'm ready to roll. Now we'll see if the weatherman is right about 60 degrees tomorrow.

i am going to borrow a friends cube van and take the 1500 wing to the shop and have a new windshield and front speakers on but if it's not ready when i am i'll put the fuel filter on the 1200 wing and ride it. sorry bill you just can't ride the 1200 like the 1500. the 1200 scrapes pegs much sooner

If it's not raining when I leave Friday morning at 630, I'm riding to work. I'm actually getting off at noon, so I should have some riding time afterwards. But now that I've posted this, Mother Nature will probably throw a wrench in my plans. She usually does. ::)

Everyone be careful out there, lots of salt, sand and gravel. :o We need a couple of good rains to wash everthing away. Just a heads up to all, and we all need to watch out for the cagers as well, THEY WILL NOT BE LOOKING FOR US AND i'M SURE THEY ARE ALL TRYING TO KILL US. rant over.
Seriously, lets have a SAFE riding season.

It's so wonderful out today. I rode in to work and it was like this 6months were not here. So here comes the cold and rain, because we are to excited for warm weather.

Yea, but this site isn't about FAST times, it's about GOOD times! Which we will most certainly have this summer. ;D With or without our front wheels in the air.

And I probably won't unless I slow down enough so that you can pass. My rear view mirrors get buzzy at speed. ;D ;D ;D

With what you've done to your bike Bill, are you sure they didn't BLOW off? Or maybe on the way home on that chilly Sunday, maybe they FROZE off. I know what would have froze off on ME...:D

My mirrors lay down at high speed for stability ! ;D

You are all wussies. I took my mirrors off and even my muffler... Too much weight! Me and my 34hp beast will challenge anyone here to a 50' race.

Bring it... :)

:D I'm in! On bikes or on foot? Lets run 50 feet to our bikes, hope on and race 50 feet, then stop, get off, and push em the 50 feet back. Then do a shot and start over. ;D 1st one to drop their bike is eliminated, and we keep going until there is only one left standing. Or staggering. or until the Yager runs out. By the way, I need my mirrors to make sure my elbows are even. :)

Dumb joke. I was just meaning that thats about all I can see in my mirrors; my elbows. Quite the limited view. ::) I may as well take mine off too.
