Way to go! You will enjoy I'm sure. Be sure to hook up with John Rehder, the wonder boy of the Southeast! That is if you want to learn a lot about your new bike.

Thumbs up Profile Changed

Hi guys

Thanks for the words, would love to come by Miller but it might be closed by the time I hit Tallahasse. I have updated my profile, did not realize that the data was lost when we changed over because I had done my profile. Anyway, any of you out there in the ATL area lets ride!!!!!

I think I will be having a tech session on Nov 5th if you want to stop by the casa and learn how to dismantle your new toy. Jimmy (ZB50) needs a 24k service and tires. Would be glad to meet ya. Details will be posted on the southeast board soon. Ride safe!

Wink Do I have to wear a cape?

I don't know about that Dave. I'm not sure I can pull off wearing a cape and all.

Darcy,

When you arrive back home with your LT send me a PM so we can hook up. I'm in Alpharetta (near exit 11 and hwy9).

Let's meet and go for a ride together.

Thanks

Ride was wonderfull

Hi guys

The ride home was a dream, DaveDragon I got to Tallahassee around 6PM so I figure you were already gone and Miller closed. If you into remote control planes, cars, helis and all the Hobby stuff you can think of my brother owns the HobbyTown USA store that just opened up accross Governor's Mall.

The bike performed great, the ride and the day was beatifull, I got home yesterday at 7PM with enough juice to take the wife to a 30 minute ride and she love it(main reason I bought the LT) anyway, now all I need is a local owner that is willing to see and even take my bike on a ride and tell me:
Uh! you bought a lemon (which I doubt IT) or you have a couple of things needed to be checked out, or JUST RIDE IT!!!.....LOL

See you all soon on the road.
