I had a 599 a few years back. One reason I got rid of it was to get the VFR with more fairings! Plus the side mounted radiators make excellent hand warmers.

Hats off to MLK Jr. for keeping traffic light this morning. Looks like a great week for those of us who don't get to ride much on weekends.

The fog kinda sucked. But it'll be worth it.

It was a little foggy this morning. Not too bad. Yesterday morning when I went to work it was so bad I could hardly see. I hate fog like that.

Ride home was NICE yesterday.

This morning was very nice w/o the fog. Saw several other scooters enjoying their jaunt.

This afternoon will be another banner day.

I'm pretty sure there were other bikes out yesterday too... but I just couldn't see them in the fog.

Fog! I had my heart set on riding in this morning. That was until I looked outside and everything was wet and I couldn't more than five foot in front of me..

It was not bad from Katy until I hit the I-10 HOV lane. That pucker factor shot up a 1000%. Took Lucars advice, opened the shield and slowed down. All was good after that.

Yeah, it looked like I was crying from my eyes watering up riding with the shield open. Definitely an odd experience riding in the fog.
