:lol: Okay, I love having the warm weather run through for riding as much as the next biker....but my bike is down right down!!!!! The warm weather just makes it harder on me...:(

Hubby took the tank off and dropped it off at our local body shop last night. He is FINALLY getting the small dents repaired that HE (not me :tongue: ) did last year during Bike Week. The body shop said they will have it ready in a few days, so that's good!



You can see some of the dents here in the red part of the tank:




Removing the chrome looking strip we added:




Poor baby, she's naked!!!!!

What do you mean "warm weather go away?" Just when does it ever get cold down there?

Besides, if he's fixing what he did to your bike, that means you get to ride his till yours is ready to ride again. Chaz must have forgotten to explain that part of the deal.

i think i know how frustrated you feel, i've only put 50 miles on my "new" bike because of the weather. somewhere in here it must warm up enough to clear the roads so i can ride.

go ahead and take his bike for a spin just to keep in practice. after all you don't want your skills to fade.

Hi Cheri,

While the tank is in the shop, why not ask them to roll the seam under? I always thought the 900 tank would look great without that seam.

That's an idea!!! I don't like that seam look either, which was why I bought that stripping stuff. I wonder what they would charge....
Hubby has the Nomad and I see how nice his tank looks with it "rolled under" ......hmmmm...thank you for great idea!
