Okay, since everyone is starting to get out, I'm starting to get itchy myself but I was thinking of how much this site has helped me be better on the bike. Thanks to all of the help from EVERYONE. I was going to name a few, but there are so many that I have learned from and I didn't want to leave anyone out. I was thinking of some things that have helped me along the way, and here is one of many that stands out. Last year, I did the 10K service on my bike, so I had the bike in hubbies shop for several days, (fortunately, he didn't need it so I didn't get kicked out) but I put new spark plugs in the bike among other things. One day last summer, I was riding to work one morning and all of a sudden, something was definitely wrong with the bike. I'm in the fast lane on 71 S coming into Cincinnati, I didn't want to have to stop here. I lost a bit of speed, but not too much, so I start working my way to the right just in case. I calmly looked down to see if there was any fluid spewing from the bike, nothing on the right, no fluid on the left, ahh, but I did notice that one of the spark plug wires had worked loose. So, I reached down and popped it back on until I could get off the highway to check it out better. I obviously did not have it seated on the plug properly, but thanks to the fine folks here, I had the confidence not to panic at 70 mph and got the bike back to speed without getting hurt, not to mention tearing up my bike. :yes So, I just want to thank everyone with the knowledge of these great bikes that is willing to share so that many of us 'little people' have the opportunity to become better riders by learning about our ride. (As much as I would love to say, 'I'd like to thank the academy and all the little people', I realize I am the little people and you guys are the Great Ones).:worthy:worthy:worthy Thanks!
