    I took a ride Monday on the VFR and it was great.

    Make sure and keep an eye out for all the sand/salt and shit though. Roads are still in pretty bad shape.

    It's been in the low 80s here for the past couple of days. But I'm still waiting on my chain and sprockets to arrive. :(

    (can't wait to try out the new +2 :naughty: )

    I've been riding whenever we get a non-rainy day up here in Seattle. Not too many days over the winter but I can tell the weather is starting to turn. It was beautiful here on Monday and today and this weekend is supposed to be primo.

    I'm stoked!

    I can't wait for the warm weather. I bought a textile jacket and its worthless, it has to be hot out to ride with it at all or else it is just torture.

    woohoo...had the bike in on Friday and hat here tuined up. Then took her to work on saturday and went for a short ride.

    I had forgotten how stupid Utah drivers are until i went on my short ride. I almost got hit like 4 times within 50 miles.....almost got rear ended by a punk ass kid driving his daddy's M3....almost got run into a snowbank on the side of a canyon road in the mountains by and old lady in a lincoln continental.....and almost got sandwiched between two cars by a stupid fuck in his riced out honda civic.

    God damn...no wonder my insurance is so high on the 6....people treat motorcycle riders like shit on the roads.

    i am starting to wonder if i should start carrying marbles in my pocket or something to toss over my shoulder when these fuckers almost kill me becasue they can't pay attention to anything or respect other motorists on the road.

    damn how was the vrod?...thats prolly the one harley i truly like.....i personally like hand built choppers more than harleys but whatever.

    i took the bike out again today...hauled ass up to park city with my roomate ..me on the 6 and him on the Fz1...it was kinda cold and got more windy as the ride went on. but it was fun...we almost got run over by some idiot in a durango on his cell phone...damn retards. learn how to drive...we hauled ass away from him pretty quick. im can't wait till it warms up a little bit.

    I liked the v-rod, it is alot different from riding my fat boy. It handled well and was fun, plus the weather could not have been better. It was not too bad getting to ride without a helmet either. The only bad part of the trip was not getting to Ybor to party.

    I went riding last weekend up the mountain and it was amazing. There were so many guys out riding. I can't wait for warmer weather to ride every day.
