Hey Mcneuby, glad to hear that your getting out and putting some miles on your new bike. Im still doing all my riding by myself,and for a 91,it starts up first time everytime,and will still get up and go if I ask it to. Other than an AGM battery and some Iridium plugs,mine is still stock also. About a month or so ago,when I would hit a bump hard,I was getting sharp pains in my right chest.My Dr. took a scan and I found out Ive been riding with a broken rib. Its feeling better so I ride every chance I can..Just thought Id say hey and take care,Paulywog.
