Hi everyone!

Ahhh the bumble bee V While you are waiting for spring do you have any modding plans? Where are you located? I got my NEW 2011 about this time last year and it went under the wrench pretty quick. It can be quite addicting once you get started. Welcome to the family from Alaska.

It would be "torture" to buy a new bike then have to wait for the weather to break. But, the bike WOULD look nice as it sits INSIDE my living room!

The real hard part is when it is warm enough to ride, but you know you have to get caught up on outdoor chores.

I am in Boston, MA. I traded in my sports bike and got this one. Never ridden something like this before, but I have always dreamed of going for long and comfortable rides.

I heard people complaining about the seat. So, I might be interested in a seat support or maybe a better seat. Also I am interested in getting a top case and a higher windshield. Other than that I need sun

A taller windshield and hand guards make a huge difference in comfort. Especially on the cold.
