Thanks for the encouragement
Thanks all for the helpful comments.
I am supposed to be retired, but I am going back to work to buy my "BurgerKing". (Pension certainly won't cover it)
I guess Wayne, that we just won't "grow up" as my wife means it anyway. :wink:
BTW, have any of you seen the article in the paper (Dec.3/04 National Post in this case although it is a Canwest News Service article)?
It's titled "Former Riders regain lost love as BABES" (born again bike enthusiasts). It's all about we/us older riders who gave it all up to become model citizens, but are now scratching the itch. Seems to me the new super scooters have a big future! :wink:
Okay, pauljo, I'm pretty much decided on the 650! I'll just have to afford it some how...
Now I have to decide between silver and blue. I've read in a few places that the blue (pretty as it is) blends in with the road quite a bit.
I really like the colour, but I'm thinking the silver will be more visible.
From what I read, being "seen" on two wheels is a good thing, safety wise.
Have heard about something called a headlight/taillight modulator. What does this do, make your lights flash and dance arouind like a cop car?
Is it legal? Certainly would make you noticed all right!
Can it be switched on or off? Who makes it?
Do you think I ask enough questions? :lol:
Just listen to me Steve! I'm hooked all right!
Already planning on goodies like sticky glove box liners so my sunglasses, Palm Pilot, cell phone, etc. don't bang around.
Already use a sticky black pad in my "Cage" (see I'm learning the lingo), so my sunglasses don't slide about.
I noticed too that the Aprilia Atlantic 500 has built in crash bars. Seems like a good idea if you drop it. (Don't really plan to). Are there any aftermarket bars like that available for "our" Burgs?
Also think I will keep a small piece of wood or a hockey puck with me for sidestanding on tarmac on a hot day.
See, I am learning a lot from you guys. :wink:
Tomorrow, as I mentioned in my prev. post, , I will be at the Toronto show with my oldest (29) daughter. Might see some of you there.
Taking my digital camera. If I get any good pictures I'll try and post them here. (Soon as I figure out how to do that!) :idea:
Anyway, from a newbie, thanks again.
