Well i decided to ride my 98 to work today so i can go by and hae it registered on the way home. Left the house at 430 to get to the gym about 14 miles away. Then on to work about another 10. The only problem i had today was the fog......was no way to keep my face shield clean. So i rode with it open. I dont know why but at certain speeds it seemed as if i couldnt breath through my nose, to much pressure from the speed i was going. Wierd but true. I enjoyed it. This bike is really quiet at 40-50 in fith gear. I couldnt hear the exhaust. All i heard was the knobby tires against the asphault. Still fun to me.
