since I have gone around Lake Superior twice, clockwise, this time I should go counter clockwise.

I will just back road it to Green Bay then head for The Soo and see what happens.

Finally a PCX!

Well it took a year or so, but I pick up my new PCX tomorrow. And by waiting, I get one of the elusive candy red ones! Donít laugh, but I traded a 2003 V-Max for it. So I go from 120 hp to 10 hp but will be driving at the same 35-40 mph! The V-Max was really annoying stuck behind the SLOW traffic here in NH. (Donít worry: I still have a Valkyrie when I need a big bike for 500 mile days.) But I suspect the PCX will be my bike of choice for summer rides to the beach.

And by the looks of the news today, Iran and Saudi Arabia cutting oil exports, I snagged this scooter just in the nick of time.

Any feedback on how you're enjoying the bike? It's a lot more fun to ride a slow bike fast than it is to ride a fast bike slow.
