When you left my casa awhile ago, I thought - daaaaamn, that scoot is quiet. Guess you can sneak home late and not wake Debra or the dogs!!

BTW, who's gonna work on it and do the first service, since it's only got 3500 miles on it? Cycle Plex or Harrison? I'll do taxi duty if you need it. Congrats, and enjoy. Butt don't leave the GT over in the corner too often!!!!

Re: The Darkside calleth

DAMN!!! I didn't get no stuffed animal. Now I'm pissed!

I'll have to look, but I think all I need at 4K is an oil change.

Man, it has a totally different throttle and clutch feel than the GT. It's like learning to ride all over again....with no gear indicator. I gotta be more alert now. I don't to lock up that rear wheel again when I downshift. Man, that was spooky feeling the rear end lock up.

Your Black Wing is mighty purty ... but my C14 is pictured here on the Cherohala Skyway. And that trumps just about anything.

Still love those bikes. That new C14 is really sweet. Congrats on your new ride.

I gotta get used to riding Japanese again. Damn idiots put the turn indicator switch in the wrong place! And there's only 1 of 'em to boot!
