    Hi All,

    A big thank you from me and a giant one fingered salute from my wife. I've been a lurking lurcher or lurching lurker for years and finally got off my duff and picked up a new, my new 2012. Nice and white, need to color it in with some dirt.

    Not 30 minutes after getting home I ordered the DMO pegs, and have some how held off on the Cycle rack. Bitter bitter will power.

    Hope to be of some help or at least not a huge PITA. Glad to fianlly part of such an, hmm, interesting group.

    Just let me know when to drink the Kool Aid.

    P.S. Pics to come when I remember some passwords and the bike looks better than the stock photos.

    Well it's about time, we thought you'd never join us. Congrats on the new bike
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Yeah but no cup holder!! Omm advice well taken and applied. Quick question on the amount of oil that should come out of the top end "check" bolt. A little or a gusher. Oil filter is correct and there is mere weeping withe the bt hanging on by a thread or two.

    Remove the bolt completely. It will take about 10-15 seconds after start, dribbling at first but quickly increasing....you can turn off the engine as soon as you see oil coming out. If there is a problem you won't see ANY oil come out, and should never run over 30 seconds if you don't.



    Have a rag handy!
