Absolutely! I wouldn't be waiting for paint to dry, or trying to create a hotbox to speed the process...

Looks like our thread went dormant for a while. Hopefully the weather breaks soon. I've been booking time off from work to get the most of this year's season (EOAR, Michigan ADV Rally, DRCOOL, Fall Colours). There will be others but those mentioned should not be missed! Let's have a safe season and be sure to salute your fellow ADVrider

Mike I think mine did this winter, had it on a trickle - tender for 3 weeks will find out soon... Need the battery that takes the vibes on mine, does your 950 need the same one?

Look for an AGM battery. They can take a lot more abuse than a regular battery, and are not that much more expensive.

yeah I have the PC310 in it now, designed for the vibes the 640 tosses out.

Went out onthe CBR today but the thing kills my back ever since the accident, so might trade it in. Was actually debating trading both in and getting maybe the tiger 80 or something, but havent even seenone up close yet...
sounds like a great excuse to go to some shops and drool over some bikes.

Yeah I missed out on all the shows this year. I watched a few videos on the tiger, looks like a good combo for me, strong fast motor, and a little dirt oriented. Wish it was lighter though... Loved the video "The Raiden Files: Portland to Dakar" was not bad to show the bikes. capabilities and limitations, albeit with top end riders.
