Too cold to ride in Montana ice and snow not friend. Own a 2000 and a 2007 old girl is my favorite. I miss Santa Rosa lived there for 15 years,up here they don't know what a twisty road is. Not to mention being able to ride all year long. Lots of mod some unique. Custom centerstand stainless and lightweight. Front fender lowering attached to fork brace (Sherpa) keeps a lot of water off. Headlight 55/100 watt way to go.
