Welcome!
  • How long have you had the bike?
  • How many miles are on it?
  • How many have you put on it?
Do you have AAA's motorcycle/recreational vehicle policy? :giggles

Welcome to another new brick owner and someone from Minnesota!  Just remember to park it on the side stand to keep your handle valid.

Ok then, park it on your center stand if you must and forego the smoke.  You can always dream of your youth for visions of blue smoke.
