Yay, a local big bike rider ready to get that bitch dirty? My advice, break of a mirror and a blinker quick, and scratch up those pretty valve covers quick and get it out of the way. That's what I did, and I think all the scratches are prettier than that shiny orange unscathed paint!! I did buy a new mirror and blinker, the other blinker is just taped up. You hardly notice

Seriously, though, did you see my ride post for this week, up the Klickitat and over to Bickleton on this Friday? If you could swing it, that would be the PERFECT break-in cruise for you and your bike. I don't need to do any dirt, unless you want to .
