Whisky Report:

2" to 8" of snow on the ground was fun - but just made me realize how much more I need to get out and ride.

Note to self: Random stabs at front break for on reason on wet asphault = bad idea.

Looking forward to warped - 530 is going in for some jetting work since I can't figure it out.

Jimmy says, never stab the front brake, gentle modulation...

I told you the easy fix for the 530.

I think he was referring to use of the clutch, or failing that, procuring a clutch with a spider emblem etched on the clutch cover.

Good ride today, I did my best to straighten out those S tracks, I left the snow angles in place though, thought they added something nice to the landscape

Nice meeting you guys

Im ready to go again...

...and if the 950 leaves you a little short, part out the 530 too.

Problem definitely solved, a 500 in your garage and no divorce. You get by with a little help from your friends.

No more jetting issues either.
