Woke up my bike today after a long winter nap (the bike, not me!). Fresh oil and filter and drained out nasty old fuel from last year from the bowls. Disconnected the battery from it's winter optimizer and it woke right up. A short ride around the block to get it to operating temp, then back in the garage. I'M ready, but it needs a new rear tire first before we get back to puttin on the miles. A good feeling to wake up your bike after a long sleep! Can't wait to get back on it!

Just cuz you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD.
It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

'Eager" 1979 CX500C Maroon.
Name is derived from the sound of this engine at highway speeds.
Like its eager to go.
had a Horse that was "Eager"
But didn't sound the same.
So I called him "Duke"
