Well, I went and picked up my 2003 XRL yesterday and what a freaking great day! I decided to get my hands on a versahauler which was simple to use and held the bike securely on the way home.. It was about 35 or so by the time I got home, and I spent the rest of the afternoon ripping around getting used to the bike.. Unfortunately, I tore up our back yard a little bit because it was wet, but oh well.. I wasn't up for making the trek to somewhere good to ride which is over an hour away. Spent the rest of the afternoon / evening hooliganing around town, getting the registration taken care of, etc. There is a little snow on the ground today, so I might have to get it out in a while and test out those knobbys to see how they do in the snow.. My other bikes are a hayabusa and a ducati monster s4rs, and I can already tell there is going to be some serious competition in the garage!! I think I'm falling for her..
