pretty sure those are the stock fairings so you should be able to tell if it's been down. 22000km = valve adjustment probably needs to be done in the near future.

I have 7 bikes at my house right now, everyone brings it over either for storage or to get worked on. The Marauder and 600rr is mine though. :P

I wanted to ride this past weekend but they salted all the roadways in the complex and PoCo had spayed the de-icer on all the roads.

It would have taken hours to was the bike, and it was to cold to do that.

Not sure if you care, but if you want to check for a swapped American cluster (usually for hiding mileage), disconnect the battery and reconnect it after a bit. It'll be in mph and Fahrenheit if it's been swapped. Ask me how I know

That's why Townhouses are better than condo's

I have a 2 car garage that is attached to a 3 bedroom Townhouse

The better half has a Dishwasher that is attached to a 3 bedroom Townhouse

Everybody is happy

Except my car is parked on the street as my half of the garage is tools, shop and bikes

I rode my bike around the parking garage the other day... can't believe it has been off the road for almost 6 weeks now.

I think I will insure her for the end of March again... I rode her until literally it wasn't possible any more due to temperature.... I was usually off work at 10pm and riding home from West Vancouver to Metrotown on the HWY was an insanely chilly affair with the gear that I have.... don't know how others do it!

Also - should start planning a spring riding season kickoff.

After the Revscene summer meet, I have NO worries about riding with anybody in this group... I was very impressed with the maturity of the group.

I think the usual kickoff has always been the Spring meet in late March or early April

either way, that's when i'm planning to re-insure the Gixxer

don't be fooled by it, it'll get cold soon enough

on a side note, this is what my friend's Triumph 675R looks like as of right now and it's scaring me cause i'll have to do the same thing during the next off season.

At first I digged the woodgrain style and realized it was just shiny... *Very sad* I'm so putting wood on my bike next.
