Not a thing went wrong!!

Went for a spin on the bike today, which was our first warm day, and not a thing went wrong!! The bike started right away, purred for a few seconds before I pushed it off the centerstand and backed it slowly out of the garage. Hit first gear and down our driveway I drove. After a few blocks, I hit a main road and zoom........ What a rush!! Turned on the music and let her rip. It's nice to just get on and ride without any problems or concerns. Oh yes, my only concern is keeping the speed down to legal limits.
After reading all the problems listed on this K1200 LT blog, I thought it was time for a happy thread.
I hope there are more happy stories out there.
Drive safe!!

Mine exhibits these very same characteristics. Ride-on.

I wish I could think of clever things to say in my signature.
