Very nice Robin !! Now if it would just warm up. LOL
Yep...thanks John....the real sad thing is that I probably won't get to ride it for over a year.....drivers side thumb will be about half healed up by April 5th then I go in for an upper ball joint replacement on my passenger side......that will take me out of doing anything like riding a heavy bike for all next summer and be likely well into the fall before I could ride, work or run a chainsaw.....

This thing came with a bunch of stuff too.....quick detach windshield, quick detach leatherish saddle bags, quick detach sissy bar and luggage rack......some of it be useful from tyme to tyme I'm sure...
The windshield comes in very handy on longer trips, anything over an hours ride for me. Early days I wouldn`t think of putting a shield on a bike but experience and age changed my thinking somewhat. Two to three hours fighting the wind proves to be very tiring. Last long run I did on an open bike was 5 hours from Louisbourg to Dartmouth the long way round on a six cylinder CBX , one stop in Sheerbrooke for gas. Felt like I had taken a severe beating for the next couple days recuperating.

PSA: Guys its time to start thinking about what to get your lady friend for the holidays. "Ohh I don't want anything" is a LIE!! Don't fret you still have a few days... just start thinking about it now.
On it for the last 35 days, mostly online buying this year, just buy local to fill the huge stocking that can`t even be hung up by the fire.

Yep that's a long way from Louisburg to Dartmouth........when you say the long way around I expect you came down the east side of cape Breton and then down through the woods until you get back to the coast and then down to Dartmouth....that's alotta wind!!!

Yes, that`s the long way, only did the Trans Can from the causeway to Antigonish, then down to Sheerbrooke on the #7 up the shore to Dartmouth.

Customers here would wait until the firewood was froze to the ground and covered deep in snow to call in desperate need of firewood delivery, make the call and expect it delivered within a few hours...meh...!
WE DEAL WITH THIS BESHIK ALMOST EVERYDAY. NOW WE JUST TELL THEM TO SHOW UP WITH THEIR SUV AND LOAD UP. LOL
