Thank you for the video Windmann.
With all this snow, I suppose you had looked forward to this first ride.
I read all your posts in France and on this great Texan forum .
Bonne route.

Merci pour la vidéo Windmann.
Avec toute cette neige, je suppose que tu devais attendre avec impatience cette première sortie.
Je lis tous tes posts en France et sur ce super forum Texan.
Bonne route.

Dude... I don't know how you people can live with all that snow!! :eek2: :lol2: One morning a few weeks back, my Mom calls at the unnatural hour of 7:00am, "Look out your window!! It's snowing!!" Amazing the woman has known me for 41 years and still thinks I'd be up at 7:00am or would care what was happening then... I am NOT a morning person. Anyway, we got some snow flurries, melted the instant it hit. A few days before that it had been in the upper 70's. A few weeks before that (late Feb) I had been out in Big Bend (West Texas) on a ride and was in the 90's! Now we are back up into the 80's with monster humidity :doh: Temps in the 90's-100's are just around the corner... :trust:

You need a 17t front sprocket to keep those wheelies up, its also a little easier on the motor. Noticed you were in the rev limiter quite a bit hope that was not the break-in ride:eek2:

Snow up there is terrible glad I am down here where yesterday it was 81 degrees:rider:

The link was blocked here at work, but congratulations, it must have been nice to go for a ride. What month did you have to winterized the bike last year?

Just think, when it is 112F where I am, you will be enjoying 80 degree days.

I have the 17 tooth, that why I hit the rev limiter so fast. And don't worry I,am at my 4th maintenance schedule.

Actually with the proper clothing it's not so bad...and the sun was great.
