Hey, it had been in the 30's every morning when I ride to work. Might have been a toasty 40 this morning. But high 50's and even a 65 driving home. As long as it doesn't rain, I ride. Gotta love fuel injection. No choke, starts right up.
Lousy gas mileage when its cold, though. low 30 mpg's. Tried a portable radio with ear plugs. decided I'd rather listen to the engine. Ain't it sweet.
As mine is getting broken in (now 2200 miles) , the gas mileage seems to be getting better. I took a putt last weekend and averaged 46mpg! Two lane cruising at 60-70 mostly, with a little highway 75-80 and some in town.
It's cold in the mornings here, around 30, but daytime highs in the mid 70's. Nice being on her today. What a sweet ride.
i was working in the garage yesterday and kept looking at the rod all day till i couldnt resist, got the key, started her up, blip blip on the throttle, damn those v mods sound sweet! to bad theres so much snow between the shop and the road, she`ll have to wait.
I love my V-Rod too!
So much that I'm having a hard time leaving her for break installation. In a box, two fronts, one rear aftermarket calipers. He might sell them if I don't get her there. I have more time and trying to enjoy time with the V so told him to do whatever, I know of a proctologist. I bought my bike to go.
Man! Do I feel for the winter people, I can ride all year thanks allmighty. Except! Jeez, hurricane season passed without much rain, and NOW it rains almost daily (still ride, not as fun).
Dyno day today so chill, paint the fence, up, down. Did the skinny chic.

Go out warm up, shake it man, shake, brrrrrr, rev it waata, waaaaaaaatatatata, call everyone, get those children off the street damit, get out of suburbia, do 8000 fast in first, don't let off, shift to second, wide left hander, keep it pinned waaaaaa sideways, 7000 waaaaaa, 8000 don't let go waaaaaa, third to gzillion mph front car coming atcha waaaaaaaaaaaa, don't let go damit, DO NOT LET GO, old lady saw you in rear view mirror, blaaaaaaahrrrrr past LOL, f**k the road look at LOL's face (or was it a bus full of nuns, maybe a cop). pop. drool woke me up. Damn! Daydreams of a so called RUB. I just, I, I just forgot my lithium:rofl3: .
If someone doesn't get it it's because I'm kidding (about the lithium, break in, the children part, and daydreaming).
BUT above is a description of 4am to work today, seemed like just a white mustang from behind, never had a chance on the little POS, was a cop, got to me (much) later at work while parked, bought the lie about an emergency, complimented the bike, no ticket stilpoke has VTX and we racin cause I wanna kick HIS ass). HA! Just going early to get dyno time later, will tell him after I kick his ass, of course beers first. Just got upstairs and miss my V-Rod already. God do I love this bike. It don't fit the family room.
I was sitting at a light the other day, when this stunning blonde sitting in a black H2 in the next lane talking on her cell (of course), rolls down her window, leans out and says "I have one of those at home" , gives me a killer smile, closes the window and goes back to her conversation. (I'm hoping she meant a real one not one of those RC models.)
I hate winter(snow),but I love my v-rod yo much to take it out and break it on the ice and snow covered roads.I love it in one pc, so it can sit and hypernate thru the winter.Very shortly within the next couple of weeks I'll be getting tearing into her and doing some cosmetic surgery.
I HATE WINTER
I visited her on Friday when I brought lunch for the shop (was the SO's B-day). Was in the very back row, behind some other stuff so I couldn't take her out but the roads here are all quite salty and after all he went through with getting those chrome and aluminum parts warranteed, it's just as well.
I printed out the carbon-fiber wheel thread for him... so the seeds have been planted. He preferred the 5-spoke over the 3... muahahahaaaaaaaaa
