Certainly unusually mild winter all along... some trees are beginning to bud. I need to get brakes flushed and I'll be good to go.

I had mine out today as well 34F. New valve adjustments and clutch fluid change so wanted to check it out. It was idling too slow and stalled once, I'm hoping it's just old gas.

Saw a few bikes out here in Edmonton today. Mine is in my daughters garage in a back icy lane :(

I'm noticing the folks that ride this time of year:
1. Leathery Old Harley riders that don't give a F***
2. Really COLD looking riders
3. Relatively happy BMW riders

Gary, what did you think of the Hyperpro springs? I HAVE to do something to the old sag wagon. It drives me nuts!

I put the trickle charger on Friday evening and started and let it run on Saturday. Too much salt on the roads to ride it yet, but I like to run it for 30 minutes at least once every other month in the off season to exercise the seals. Not sure if it's a good idea or not, but I do it anyway.

I have only an hour on them, drove over a rough railway crossing, some rough pavement, hit a couple of 1 inch sunken mainholes that before caused quite a bang in the front end but now not, as I thought would be the case a little more jostling on broken pavement but I am pleased with them - ride is more like the K1100 - if it gets up to 7C tomorrow as forcast will take it out on the highway - I suspect the ride will be the same on smooth pavement as it was before - bike is about 1/2 inch or so higher
