    I had 3 strong :rolleyes friends with me and it took 10 minutes to get unstuck.
    I have no pictures of one of my mate's bike... it took almost one hour to get that unstuck:knary

    Nice you mention the kickstand.
    We layed the bike down to put some debris under the rear wheel. Once the bike was standing and I tried to fire it with no success, I found the kickstand opened, trapped in the mud.

    Hope you understand my english...:shog

    It was near freezing here all day but a buddy and I got out and rode for 4 hours before the snow started :ricky
    (it is snowing now.. 3 inches is forecast this evening :patch).

    In the winter we ride the "Kansas side" of Colorado (locals consider anything east of I25 to be Kansas)

    I sure hope the novelty wears off with spinning up the rear tire. All I have done for the past 3 days is ride around drawing stripes at the exit of every corner. Looking at the amount of wear on the brand new 908 I just put on.. I figure I am spending about $15-20 per ride on rubber :eek1

    I love this bike :ricky
    Can't wait for summer!

    No,, the novelty never wears off,, I've been riding a bike for 23 years now,, and I've been doing that since I found out I could.. I even went thru tires in my 68 sedan de ville.... Think of it as an investment in satisfaction..

    And I cant wait for summer either,, Bike looks good,, and your buddy's LC4 does too..

    Not a chance, if you're getting more than a grand out of those 908's you're doing it all wrong. :thumb

    Me likey!!! :bow

    Wonder why?:evil

    Although, looking at yours, it's easier to view, mine looks like he's in jail or something hiding behind the Hepco barZ.

    I totally agree, this is a SUPER bike. I just wish I could put it through it's paces like many on this site.

    As for the orange bike with the busted front fender due to massive mud injestion, that is the sole reason why I went with this instead. :thumb
