Wife and I took the scoot to Anna Maria/Sarasota today. Oh my!! Beautiful day to ride. Temp was in the high 80s, sky was clear and the Gulf water was a pearlescent green. Could feel the stress melting away. Only thing not enjoyable was the Lovebugs. They seem to get worse every year. The front of my bike was litteraly covered in black wings, orange dots (thorax) and smelly acidic guts. These bugs are so acidic they can ruin your paint. So..when we got to Cortez beach I wet a towel in the bathroom and slowly began to get them off. Finished with some Pledge I carry in the saddlebag and she looked new. Anyway, I am really impressed with this Stage 1. My bike never went into heat management. Prior to installing the Stage 1, she would have been cooking at the stop lights. She ran great. Stopped at the Gulf Beach Cafe on Bradenton Beach for lunch. Excellent.
