    Picked her up today and hauled her home. It was -8 F here this morning, 14 F in Grand Junction where I bought her, and I threw in a little test ride for good measure! 14 F just ain't all that bad :rofl

    More to come tomorrow, but for today, I am thrilled! :clap

    Congrats! :freaky I'm in the same boat, I bought my adventure on the day before Thanksgiving, but then it was freezing rain and snow the next day and I have been squeaking in little rides when the weather allows.
    Great purchase and enjoy!

    Oh, the mud will come! But for now I'm spending time in the garage "bonding".

    This thing is just so amazingly clean! I spent the day just going over it from top to bottom (mostly on the outside) and I'm just amazed at the absence of dirt, scratches, scrapes, nicks, or anything.......you could have eaten off of it before I cleaned it more! :rofl

    It's the closest thing I've ever had to a "new" bike. :D
