For nearly 6 months...

...I have not cared if it rained, if it snowed or if it was sunny. I didn't have a bike, only my trusty Tundra to get from point A to point B, so I haven't checked a weather forecast in MONTHS!

I got my 600RR yesterday and now I find myself checking the forecast about every 4-5 hours to see if its changed.

Its amazing what bike ownership will do to you... My have I missed it, its good to be back!

You have to start all over again! Welcome newbie!

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Nope. His has the stock rear shock linkage, rear footpegs, reflectors, and two scratches. Hers has none of those as of right now.

Re: For nearly 6 months...

Trunda must mean a cage --- well just guessing. I started out on m/cs & cages came after. That was back in '46 & while I might not have a cage for a while I always had a m/c.

Once I moved out of the cities to small towns then a cage was a 'must' & especially for someone like myself in Western Canada, but still a number of dirt comp irons & at least one for hwy use.

So YES I to notice the weather & in my case how I am not able to ride for some 5 months of each year.

if you ride it long, check REAALLY low on the tank, they'll show up. (the scratches) My roadcrafter really had a blast down there...
