New Ride

Well got down to the gap a little early on thursday and decided to pick up a new toy. I don't think I'll ever ride the sportbike on the street again!

1100 miles on it so far and I'm loving it. Handling on it is even awesome

It's fully loaded with ABS, Navigation, Heated seats/grips, Premium sound. Hell it even comes with a key fob to lock/unlock/open the trunks.

Yup, full Nav system on those bad boys. you check that just before the cappucino machine in the right saddle bag is done.

sweet, I'm not a total dumbass today. Can that thing also make a grande bananna buncha frozen latte iced fruitola? ha ha.

Nav system would be good, better than trying to pull directions out of my pocket at every light, like yesterday.

hahahaha thanks guys. The nav rocks. Road it back from the gap using the nav and it worked flawless. I also used it to explore down there and it never let me down. First for the mods is a utopia backrest and some highway pegs

LOL and to set the record straight this is actually "her" bike. Bought so I can cart her around in when she's to lazy to ride herself haha (poor me). Next year we plan on doing a colorado trip and maybe something east.

It's funny you mentioned that because my house is really rising in value, too, which is one of the reasons I decided to stay here. Gotta love Naperville.

Very sweet bike, Nick. So how far have you ridden the wheelies on it?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
