This is jolly good, and I can't wait to see it. Did you order one?
I'm waiting until one shows up at Larson's.

Agreed.

Mind you, it IS February.

However, as is normal for me at this time of year, I am ready for old man winter to just piss right off.

I second that! We are slowly moving into a new house and everything seems to take twice as long. I would be happy with "NORMAL" February temps, I've had enough of de-icing stuff that worked just fine the day before.

(Sorry )
I bought a Suzuki Katana as a kid in college, crashed it, bought a KLR 250. Rode that around for a while, decided I wanted something bigger so I bought a Suzuki Bandit 400. That thing was ridiculously loud but not very big, so I sold it and bought a Suzuki 800 cruiser. Rode that around for a while and sold it to buy a Triumph Trophy 900. Did a Fly n ride to buy that, broke down a bunch of times coming back from the east coast (common fueling issues). Didn't ride it much, but had someone pull out in front of me and totalled it. Then I bought a Ninja 650R on a whim, rode it for a season and got bored with it, sold it. Bought an Aprilia Futura. Paid $4K for it, and put $2500 in parts and maintenance into in in less than a year. Put 10K miles on it, but it left me stranded in Mitchell, SD on my last trip (yay corn palace). Rented a truck and towed it home to Mpls. Sold it last spring. Plopped down some cash on a new V-Strom last week. Rode a bunch of scooters around town inbetween all of this too. Now I'm on motorcycle forums trying to bide time until the snow and ice melts.

I started ignoring "they" after "they" told me we would have average winter weather after the first polar vortex. "They" haven't been very accurate in the weather prediction department this winter.
