The tour package doesn't come off really easy. But there is a kit you can buy for 4 or 500$ that will turn it into a quick disconnect. So I think I will just leave it on all the time. And that seat is badass, the most comfortable seat I have ever used. I guess it is an add on and did not come stock, it is an air seat made by HD. And the back rest which really makes the bike look like an old man bike is also very comfy, I could ride that thing across the country no problem! Come on nice weather!!!

So now that it's almost summer how many miles have you ridden in 2011?

I bought my bike 18 days ago and have 780 or so miles in.

BTW We got a new ride Last Fall from the Auto Auction last fall.

Sold the Old ride (1982 Honda Silverwing) for $2500.00 on E-bay:


Here is a pic of the New Scoot the day I brought it home from the auction.
1997 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Classic, 1300 V4, Got it for $2,250.00





I worked on it this winter, Added a fairing, New rear tire and brakes, added some Safety Chrome, Changed all of the fluids to Amsoil, and a few other items.









Tac, Oil Pressure, Temp, and Volt gauges, and a Shark Audio System, with an IPod Input.





Here is a pic of it on our trip in Travers City. We are having a blast with our new bike!



Checking in at the Motel in Alpena:


This one is taken in the UP by Lake Superior

I just completed a 200 mile round (overnight) trip up to Traverse City to see a friend. It was pretty nice yesterday, but a little chilly. Today was full on cold…Luckily I missed the rain on the way back down. Taking the back roads up there is definitely worth it. It’s so pretty and the roads are nice and curvy. :)

Finished Day 1 of 2 on the range today. Had fun, did alot of sweating and found out I don't like Slow speed maneuvering. I think I finally got it by the end of the day.

Not that I know of. We did slaloms and it took me a while to get the hang of it with the back brake and the friction zone. We ended with the quick stop exercise this morning. It was fun

Quick stop in straight line? 2 Part exercise. Part one, stop when you reach the first set of cones. Part two, stop on coaches signal.
That exercise?

Yup, that one. I enjoyed that one the most probably. Once I got the process of shifting and braking down in my head that is. We still have a 6 or 7 more exercises to go though.
