Just got home with it. Fun even in Southern California Traffic. Defnintely need to get a second fan. Even splitting lanes in cool weather it got warm at the lights.



Need to order a proper bashplate and relocate the sidestand then maybe a throttle lock and a few other bits.

Nice score!!
That would be the year and model i would get if i ever let mine go.
Every couple years i like to pull the radiator and give it a good clean, that will help the cooling issue.

This is down in South East Indiana, between Versailles and Batesville. Check out the Indiana thread and get in touch with inmate "Sidetrip" hes got some great routes down around that area. All of those pictures were taken on one of his routes.

If you are looking for color, check out the Brown County area, it gets very touristy, however if your on the right bike, which if your posting here means you have the best, you can find some great out of the way roads where the cars can't get to. If you need ideas, PM me and I can point you in the right direction.
