Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Thumbs up Just hit the 3000 mile mark . . .

So, of course I changed the oil again. This time, in North GA. The bike is really starting to "free up" and I am falling head-over-heels in love with the thing. The only two questionable issues were the windshield and seat. I replaced the shield with a Cee Bailey's, that was resolved. Today, I put an Air Hawk on the seat, and YEA BABY!!! My seat issues are done and over with! Now I have the perfect motorcycle . . . for me. The motor is becoming more & more intoxicating each day. The sound, the feel, the suspension, the brakes, etc., etc... Awesome!

Tomorrow, we'll do the Cherohala Skyway...my favorite road. I can't wait. We're meeting a friend at T.W.O. in Suches, GA at 8am, then heading out. After a nice breakfast along the way, we'll hit the Cherohala. Pics to follow.
