After having my 2008 AN 400 sit outside - covered since last September ( over the Winter) I charged the battery and it fired right up!!!!!!!!!! What a good feeling... Even better - was getting back on and riding......"INGRID BURGMAN". Went for a nice ride and ended up at my favorite coffee shop where all of my biker friends hang out. Head count: 1 Goldwing Gl1800 bike, 1 Goldwing GL1800 trike, Valkerie, and 2H-Ds .......!! Oh and also.....1 Burgman 400.! MINE!
:lol: :lol: One H-D rider tried to ride my 400 BUT he is 6'6" and could NOT fit on it.!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahahaha.. But they all thought that it was a very cool ride......! Honest. :lol: :lol:

Glad you got a chance to cycle the fluids through her again.
I know Ingrid is happy for the exercise.
How was the coffee?

I fired mine up after sitting the Wisconsin winter and was amazed on how quickly it started! Probably no different then during the summer, fully warmed up! Hope it got some oil up there that quickly! :shock:

Doc, Why the heck did you let it sit idling for 8 months? Thats a lot of gas for sure. :D

I have seen a few 6' 6" or taller guys on Puch Mopeds while in Europe. Funny to see them zipping around in traffic. Moped biker gang's all dressed in leather looking all bad.
