Spring

I couldn't fricken take it anymore! I had to get the cover off it and bring it in the shop to tinker... but mostly just to hear it lol. Changed the fuel filter already but I hope to get a bunch done on the weekend. I wanna take off the hidden hitch & trailer plug bracket to blast and repaint them. Gonna do the same to the rear-end cover, maybe paint it with high-temp paint or something. Here's how I found her (I know the cover sucked-a$$ this winter) and a couple shots of her in the shop. Should have plates on it in a month or so hopefully. Anyone else getting antsy?

I know what you mean about getting antsy for spring. I had some time to kill yesterday, so I decided to put the battery back in my street bike and get it running. But then....lastnight and today we got another 40 cm of that white crap....LOL

Thats what I hate, even in the underground where I have it stored there's still salt dust.

I wait til may, after a bunch of solid rains to wash the roads, before I take her out.

Thanks Dave, looks like a cool product. Have you used it much? If so how's it holding up? I was thinking of using bed liner which is a little bit cheaper ($150/gallon rather than $190).
