Warmed up after we left Yankees. Good ride. Good meeting new peeps and seeing old peeps.

Rumble Bee looks awesome. Stickers add HP so it is probably a 600cc 250.

Motorcycles Unlimited got attacked by about eight of us



It was a cold ride and I promise, weather permitting, we'll see the deer and gorillas next time. For those that werent there, the road was flooded over!

I only have a few pix; mainly our court jester Kathy acting a fool all day:

Lets see what everyone else thought...


and remember I was still breaking it in guys. I think it kept up pretty good, even passed some folks.



Brakes seem more then adequate for hard street braking IMO. Tires will need to go. W the heavier weight oil I was topped out in corners and I could feel on real heavy leans I was off the bike the front gets loose.

My air pressure was higher then normal and the street couldnt have been in worse shape for riding w the cold, but I was very satisfied with it. The bike is just sooooo freaking light at 277lbs its hard to feel the weight under myself.

I wish I could say the same about the 250. I feel that sometimes I can use more breaking power.

If I had psychic powers and knew the buyer wont take my bike, I would have gone with you guys. Just like always, sounds like y'all had fun and I missed out.
