Got a short hour and a half ride in. It was nice to ride. Could have been a little warmer.

You may want to consider puttting a touring shield and heated grips (or gloves) on that big girl, and it will be good to ride in the cold. The fairing and electric windshield protect you from the wind.  I ride mine year round.  I do use heated gear below 40 degrees

When I got home last night it was 41. My hands were the problem. I was contemplating on my ride whether to look into heated grips or gloves. Between the windshield, fairing, and my cold weather gear everything else was good.

Those old man gloves I purchased did awesome yesterday. Heated grips are a must.

Heated gloves are warmer and more comfortable but heated grips are sooooo convenient. Heated grips are a requirement for me now on any bike.

Snuck in 150 miles tonight after work. If you’re ever in the Meadville/Titusville, PA area give Pa27 look. Decent little run. Today was the first time I really started to test the abilities of the Connie. Definitely has some get up and go as well as cornering ability. Replacing the lowering links with stock links seems to fixed the bucking sensation I was getting on my original shake down ride. After I renew the plates on the CBR I need to compare the 2.

Yesterday, I finally got around to changing fork oil and seals.  I put the bike on stands and pulled the forks 2 weeks ago and it's been in the way in the garage since.

I'll put it back together and test ride it today.

Yesterday we got out for a few. Very cold, but felt good to get out.

I really enjoyed RT 27! Quite a fun little route usually catch it coming back from the allegheny national forest.

Forks are reinstalled with no leaks and I got a short test ride in Sunday.  The front end is ready to go for the season now.

 

Of course, they are predicting snot flurries this afternoon - my fault, sorry...
