well sucks that it took this long to pull it out of the living room but today i did!!!
yesterday i sold my POSVAN so i got a month of insurance and a full tank of gas (was on half a talk from last year). also aired up the tires (rear was @25ish front was at 18psi O.O) and went on a short ride around town (around 20-30 miles) and noticed the bike well "smelt hot"? it wasn't like burning oil stink or the sweetish smell of boiled coolant..... more like that smell you get when turning a heater on for the first time of the year if you know what i mean?.... the fan was also on when i got home(is what its suppose to do so should be no shock)
should i be worried? (well im always worried its one of the...."pleasures"? of being schizophrenic) or just not think about it?

in other news....
will this year be the year i finally become legal?
will i get a newer computer so i can edit and post videos better?
will i get a better camera so i can record better videos?
WHO KNOWS!!!!!!
:eek::confused:;):D:usa:

Two spots I hit.. An old bridge that I walk to time to time ( marks 4.2 miles from my house on my walking rout). And an interesting painting I've passed a few times..



All around was a nice first ride of the year for the Versys even 2 up:)

A month of insurance? How much is it where you are? I pay $240 a year for two motorcycles..liability only. Its legal and if I crash, the bikes are the least of my worries. Secondly, is there coolant visible in your overflow bottle?

im in oregon and it was about $25 for a month (i beleave it was like 250ish for a full year) and its for full coverage (encase it gets wrecked or stolen)
and yes coolant was at the proper level between the H and the L

a van that is mad by ford aka a peace of s**t
"mad by ford"

Is this anything like "crazy from the heat?"

"peace of s**t"

Obama won a peace prize. He still orders his fair share of hits on bad boys in head scarves.

I like the lizard eyes on your helmet. I'm not too sure about your van...

It was probably, as you said, dust and **** burning off... I know that musty smell of something burning but not like oil or coolant.. It'll be alright. Lube dat chain also, bc that **** is dusty and dry like an old snatch. sorry
