Hey,
Are you the same guy that was in my class at PRS a couple years ago?
You bought your bike cause it was too good of a deal to pass on?

Good lord.
I've put more km on my 2009 scooter than that bike!

Flat seat like that creeps me out. I'd rather have an indent so I can feel nice and snug.

Holy crap! Did you find it in a barn?

What's the top speed on that? Can you actually take it on the highway?

I lucked out and found a cheap Sargent seat for my bike on Craigslist. It has a WIDE gel seat and is super comfy! I've never going back to a narrow seat.

Interestingly enough, the person who I bought it from found it in a barn in Saskatchewan.

Yes. It can cruise at 100KM/h easily in 4th gear. Redline is at 12,000rpm.

Planning to install clubman/cafe bars and a cafe seat.

Just got home from a morning/afternoon ride but the bike is in the shop for a Spring time tune-up.

It's Vespa time.

New rider here

Bought my 2005 F4i on Thursday, and took it for a spin around the neighborhood this morning. Then went up to the parking lots near PNE for some more practice. Thank god for frame sliders...I've downed the bike 3 times already

Definitely way steeper learning curve on this bike than the small ones I rode at PRS!

Took the GSX-R600, it was 4 degrees today. I was sick of the anticipation so I ended up riding. Quick little ride, great to be on a bike again but it was so cold!

4C this morning, cold yet the ride home will be worth it. I finally got to try my Sartso jeans in the cold, and the extra layer of Kevlar sure helps keep my nuts warm - I don't feel nearly like a icicle as I usually do riding in this temp.

Nice ride in this morning! Still a little chilly at 7C yet my hands and nuts are not frozen - so its getting warmer! Fingers crossed for no rain till late evening.
