Finally got out today! She sputtered a bit, and it took a couple of tries, but I got out after work today. It was 50, and I got to try the heated grips I just put on. Got too warm so I had to turn them off.

I feel much better. Viva la spring!:bowdown :banana

Ha ha - that's great! I went out for the first time today too in Edmonton Canada where it was also 50F (10C) I new that because of the temp guage on my new FZ6!!. New to me anyway. Its an '05 but with only 1,300 kms! My other bike, which was my first, was an '03 Suz GS500 - great bike BTW but no comparison to the powa of the FZ6! I actually LIKE the FZ's seat. Much better than the GS's. After it warmed up it got nice and relatively soft in comparison...blah blah..
Yeah - My first ride too - Riding season is here!! sorta

I'll have to agree with Rugby on that lol. Glad to hear your enjoying the bike i'm falling in love with mine all over again. Been 40-50 here and finally drying out the mile gravel driveway so I've been able to put 50miles on so far. Supposed to be above 50 on saturday so i'm hoping to put a couple hundred miles on.

I didn't need them, I just got my first chance to try them. Gotta try them farkles before you need 'em ya know. Hate to be riding in 30 degrees and find out the fuse isn't big enough or something.

...and it's great to be down south here in Michigan :twofinger

In Toronto, and you can't go out for another 2 weeks? I'm in Sudbury and I was out last night (for the first time this season) and rode about 40kms. The main roads are even clear of sand and salt...

Man, it felt GREAT!!!!

He's a city slicker :neener , I've been riding for the last couple weeks, barring a few bad spells where it got cold and ugly. Yesterday it rained like a sumbitch all day, stopped for the ride home....Mother Nature likes when you compliment her. To think it was only a week or so ago and I rode in at -15C
