Stood out in the shop and drooled over it. Again. Like I do every day while waiting for our fukkin' Michigan winters to be over.

I'm especially tweaked about it because I've never ridden it yet "for real". Bought it ('04 Rev3 270 with '06 plastics; immaculate condition, guy was a maintenance freak like me) at the end of last season from a guy with a new '11 Beta 4T coming. Had a number of times farting around with it in the driveway and front yard going around washer fluid bottles and climbing up a 2x6 on a cinder block, but I've never ridden it in the woods yet. But I'm sure as hell excited about next season and riding it at each of our events!!

Changed the brake/clutch fluids, coolant, and tranny oil on Miss Bitters' 315 yesterday. Drained out the most awful-smelling, sh*t pink goo out of the transmission. Found out later from the PO that he was using synthetic Mobil1 ATF in it. It may be killer lubricant (I replaced it with Honda HP Racing transmission fluid), but it shore did stink!

You guys need to go edit your profile, and put in your location! EVERYONE needs to. So we know at least if you are USA or near someone we know, etc. hell, even if you just put the state would be nice.
