ST1300 actually. Nope - mine's still in the garage. I won't be plating up 'till near the end of March. She has plenty of company in the garage (there's 5 bikes there):

I'll wait for a few good dumps of rain to wash away the snow and the sand to blow off as much as possible. In the meantime, the machines can all keep each other company and stay warm and snuggly with the battery tenders.

Yep a 4 hour tour. Two up too as I recall. :hailjo:

Over 4000 km on the scoot this summer. Even got wifey on it for a four hr tour. No prob.
How's your summer riding been?
Any good trips? What's been your favorite ridee


Wifey is still unsure about being on the bike, 4 hrs was really good for her. She brings up mechanism of injury a lot.
Get over it Fritz. Why so whollyer than tho motorcycle guy

Drew, how can you wait till the end of march, bet if it was not covered up you'd be sitting in it, and next thing there would be plates on it. Gonna take the victory out this afternoon for a good ride and give her a drink of fresh oil.

I didn't plate up 'till around the 20th last year. I'm a little hesitant to go much earlier this year on something new and shiny - that blasted sand just isn't any good for the finish. I also think the other company in the garage might make it a bit of a chore getting her in and out. There's 5 of them in total in there - a bit of a squeeze at the moment. I know they'll be sticking around until April...

Let's see how long before I can't bear PMS any further. :P

Below the "save draft/preview/submit" buttons, there's a blue area. Click on the Upload attachment tab, then the choose file button. Locate the file on your computer and click okay/open. Once that's done, click "Add the file" on the below box.

Once your attachment is uploaded, a note in the blue area will show the attachment along with a link/button to "place inline". Move the text cursor (as opposed to the mouse cursor) in the message window to where you want the image to appear, and then click "Place Inline" from the blue area below.

Sorry, all I really saw as he went by in the other direction was that it was quite new,
very clean, black, and an ST on the front side of the fairing.
He was riding quite slow, maybe just picked it up and takeing it to
its new home. :sunshine:
Saw a couple Hog Peelots out yesterday as well as a few Sport Doods.

Thanks for your help, Drew. Had to reduce the pic size first so hope this comes through...

Here's one more pic using a different size format. Of course this was summer, my lawn does not look this good now.

Good lookin ride, and NOT black (no offence meant to others)
Just seems that the majority of bikes are black nowadays, no colour,
no flavour.
And yes, I too have a bike thats base colour is black.

Some of us just don't have a choice - that's the only colour the bike comes in.

Take the bait every time. What makes me "whollyer than tho motorcycle guy" because I am.
I build, wrench ride and have been for a long time. You Johnny-Come-Latley's are so predicable. You are and always WILL be a Johnny-Come_latley so just get used to it. 4 hour tour. Wow. I've had commutes longer than that.
