I actually find this bike very easy to clean, my previous bike was a real pain with all that chrome and real paint.

Sailor chic..not all of us want a 17 year old....I prefer my woman with a little patina.

+1. On both counts.  8)

I enjoy cleaning by bikes, there's something about a really clean vehicle. You have NO idea what condition a vehicle is in till you properly wash and wax it.

Sadly I don't have that 17 year old body that you referred to.
Hey, don't feel bad. I'm sure you have a better body than most 17-yr olds I see around where I live ;). The obesity rate is ridiculous, even among young people.

Nicole, you posted a pic a while back for me, remember?  17 year old girls's are simply jealous of you, and hope the grow up to look like you, and not their mama's.  17 year old boys know that the girls they know won't end up looking like you, but the girl's mamas.  Such is their disappointment in life. 

Maturity is something, that if we live long enough, we hopefully will possess.  I believe I have gotten half way there, by 80, maybe all the way.

I saw you posted that on the GTR site, too.  Must have been good eats.  I love good sausages and Mashed potatoes.  Some German Brats are really good sausages, too; especially with Dijon mustard and sauerkraut.     

Commuted to work and back today.  More evening traffic, but that just makes the trip edgier.  Same trip tomorrow.  tp

Yummy eats...............
3 x local sausage nice firm meaty + Mash that you could taste the butter and white pepper, served in a giant Yorkshire pudding and covered in onion gravy

Alas as riding back we could not sample the fine draft ales and larger..............despite the warmth of the sun demanding such pleasures.

Ride back was not bad as we missed the traffic round our second city Birmingham then the A14 and A43 dual carriageway was empty in places allowing up changes between 7-9k rpm and super cruise.

Just a bit concerned now as to what the post may  :hitfan: bring in the next few weeks  :rotflmao:

 :P I love the german food to be found in the hill country such as in Fredericksburg or New Braunfels.
