Removed the battery tender, checked the tires, washed her, lubed the chain... It's been a long time since I've been on the bike. She appears to have wintered well.



We will see what adventures are to be found ahead on the road in 2014!

Remember you're invisable, everyone hates you, and any car coming up to an enter section is going to pull out in front of you. That's how I stay alive, Have a safe riding season.

Riding season is here once again! I just added another machine to the collection. Always wanted to own a Ninja 250 and found a new one at nearly 40% off the list price. Features a liquid cooled parallel twin engine (13,000 rpm redline!) and puts out about 26 rear wheel horsepower in stock form. With a bit of tweaking I can get a lot more out of it than that :biggrin: -

Man, how can you ride something shaped liKe that? I've tried to ride bikes like the Aprilla and Duc and I end up feeling like a Giraffe bending down at a watering hole. Corse I'm tall, old, beat up, and put together with pins, plates, and screws and don't bend well.

I never rode a Ninja 250, but my orange Suzuki 650 is really comfortable. I've put in one 800 mile day, and a mess of 400 - 600 mile days. Very upright seating position and fair wind protection.

No, it doesn't look like a typical cruiser... I like the seating position on the 'Zuki better, although it reminded me of the seating position on a Road King oddly enough.

Put about 50 miles on her today by the way, running great and handling super. Nice to be back on the bike again!

No issues with sport bike ergonomics. I've done 900 mile days on my 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa

Great to see another bike out and about. Because of our crazy winter or lack thereof here I was able to ride quite a bit this winter - almost as many miles Jan - April as last May - Oct. We finally had snow up high last week but not much. The south faces are all ready melted off as in the picture but there was enough to keep the passes closed. Still I will probably be crossing over the divides in May instead of June or July like normal. Anyway it is promising to be a long dry summer.

Whiskers I think I could sit on that thing and ride it without much problem. When I caught a red light and had to stop I would just fall over in the road.:biggrin:
