Thanks to this forums, she runs well enough so I can actually enjoy riding.

Wow.  That's one sexy brick.  Love the color palette.

cool looking, but when I took off the dorky looking lower plastic rear fender to streamline my bricks look, I discovered why it's there the first time I got caught in the rain. I had  a wet back. I can imagine how much water yours will sling up. and will those stacks drink water too? wonder how it will run in the rain?

Looked like a great outing for you. Cool velocity stacks, reminds me of the way back day's of Lectron.

Certainly a big concern, not my only bike so I plan to minimize a chance of riding in rain in favor of a something more modern.
And yes even on wet surface this whole area gets dirty as hell, I'm considering adding some shield there but first I want to deal with possibly different exhaust.
