Saw a couple of newer wings at the Waconia Snowmobile Event this past Saturday....???  All of our bikes are sleeping for the winter - waiting for a couple of these snowstorms to materialize so we can get out on the snowmobiles.....

Yes I rode both Saturday and Sunday maybe 120 miles over all.

I just needed to get out on the new ride and couldn't handle it.

After the snowmobile parade of vintage machines in Waconia I made the call to take a ride. It had rained pretty good the night before and the roads were in good shape along the white salt look was gone and they were dry.

Of course as soon as I head out West on 212 it starts raining on me at least half the time on the bike. Sunday was clear and the sun broke out.

I have a feeling I'll be getting some saddle time in this summer.

I was a Honda St on Saturday. I took off work early and loaded up the R1 and took it to the dealer for that all brand new tranny. They are going to put a new air filter in it. So it is going to be really fast now. It will kick Gixxer 750 ass if you know what I mean. LOL.

I ride 50 miles every day it is above 10F and dry or 35F if wet.  Can't stand commuting in a box.

Oh my - don't air the tires at the same time or it will get away from you...  ::)

I enjoy the winter months off my bike. For me, this is the time of year when there is time for other interests!  :)
These people have taught me more about riding than any day spent on a track: Larry B, Tony K, Vince J, Lloyd R, Denyse B, V2Neal, Marty F, Kevin B, Devon W, Mike A. More to follow ......

Are you saying you broke the transmission on the R1 already?

All 2015s R1s are under recall for a new tranny.
