Installing heated Apollo grips so I can continue to ride. I'll be a tad more dressed than the yellow smiley biker.

Picked up a 2006 910 Brutale and I have no idea what has or hasn't been done to it, so I'm doing everything it should have done at this point with 17K miles. So tires, chain/sprockets, fork rebuild, plugs, replacing a couple of scuffed up plastic pieces with carbon fiber, filter, oil, brake fluid, etc. As I was taking things apart I noticed that the emissions junk had been removed - fine with me. But then I noticed the ECU was that of a Ducati 996 and an EPROM with no label. I found a guy nearby who can burn me a new EPROM. Decat/midpipe is on the way from Italy. While the bike ran ok before, I feel like it'll be one hell of a machine once everything is done, especially considering this will be my first four banger sport bike. Beyond the midpipe I don't plan on doing much more, maybe replace all the black plastics with carbon fiber and a Corbin seat and Biondi screen and a... (I didn't say I didn't plan on doing much, didn't I?? )

In the meantime I'm riding the GS and getting bored with it

I may give mine a clean I suppose

No winter lay off for me ... if it's dry and above 5c I will be out riding.

Nice to see a heated garage/bike store.

Our babies (MV's) are hibernating, until spring. The KTM Enduro's are raring to go (shame I'm not)

I'm trawling eBay daily for a winter 'el cheapo' so my good bikes won't suffer climate change.
