    I know the feeling... you just wanna ride and can't.

    It is riding season over here (although it is always riding season here) and I'm about to start the 5th week without mine. My own fault though.

        They had to replace the JB???? That stuff should hold up just fine. Those carbs are made out of a real cheap metal though. Just ask Corey

          yeah I know your pain. I bought a bike from a dealer in January. Killed me waiting for good weahter. I took it out 2 weeks ago (for the 1st time) and it wasnt running right. Its been at the shop ever since.

          I should be getting it back Saturday or Monday, and they are covering all the costs. But still, I was so looking forward to using me new ride, and then I lose 2 weeks right from the start
