Right now she's confined to the garage by snow and ice.

I'd never ride her in shorts, always full gear. I wear jeans going to work and change into my work shorts. Next investment will be Olympia riding overpants. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/14 ... Pants.aspx
Mods so far to the Bike (Red Molly) include Crashbars, Footpeg Lowering Blocks, and Barkbuster Handgrip Guards. Later will be a touring windscreen, the one that comes with the bike is way inadequate.
Some idiot almost made a bike sandwich out of me last night, had to power through the gap, Good thing one of us was paying attention.

Oh yeah ...

they're payin' attention all right.

They're ALL out to get you man!

all those flippin' four-wheelers!

fifty points for each biker in most states

So, that's some good armor, Murph.

...

Barkbusters??

...

I had some Meowmashers a few years ago. They didn't work out too well.

The fur kept gettin' in my mouth

...

and the little bastards wouldn't stay on the grips.

a) Nice ride, Tim!
b) Next winter, use the confines of the garage to practice your high-speed tight turns. ;)
c) Once you get your pants, you can wear them over your shorts to avoid offending anyone with your knobby knees. :D
Maybe you missed it, but there's a whole new "Now", now. :?

Glad you're enjoying the bike, Tim!
I know I sent a few of you this pic, but thought I'd share my new silencer with the group...

It's a bit louder, but not offensive, and the freer flow gave me an extra 1 or 2 horsepower. Looks a hell of a lot better, too!
