Can't control the weather! Wife and I wanting to take the LT 2006 BEAST on its first long Labor Day weekend ride from S. FL to NC and surrounding areas, only to be possibly curtailed by Ernesto! Hope it breaks up and continues east.
Some things to do while it's raining and you have a new M/C
1- sit on it... a long time.. learn to find all the buttons by feel....
2- Realize you are going to need to make an appointment to have your seats redone
3- Install Farkles.. (you do know what that is, don't you?)
4- practice "pre-flight" checks to become familiar with the details.. such as checking Oil levels, Tire Air pressures, adjusting rear shock preload, learn to use the headlight adjuster, etc.. etc..
5- install your Battery Tender pigtail and make sure it works.. (you'll need it to recharge battery after practicing use of all the buttons on the bike.)
