Default Riding over the weekend

Since I live in Philadelphia, it's been virtually impossible to go for a ride this season, with all the snow we've been getting. Saturday was 45* and a bit windy, but i couldn't wait, so i took the F4i out for a spin. It's my first time taking the bike out for a ride, so i didn't know what to expect. This whole time i'm worry about how mechanically sound the bike is, has been put to rest finally. It sounds, moves and rides beautifully. After changing all the fluids i think this bike will be in great functioning condition. It still cosmetically needs a decent amount of work. The front and rear fairing have cracks and scratches, but i'm inching towards ordering from Auctmart and replacing them.

My prior motorcycle was a Triumph Speed Four, and i have to say the F4i has a much MUCH more kick to it. Hands down a faster bike, and i look forward to riding it.

I have the same dilemma here in MI. This week it's supposed to be 40+ and I plan to take my bike out for a spin or two. Just itching to see what my PC3 and new gearing is going to feel like. C'mon spring!!

make sure you wash it to get the salt off. It will eat away everything
