They are saying 9° for tomorrow afternoon. If it comes to pass, I'm taking out the Lambretta for its first run.

Watch for gravel. You don't want to scratch that paint... Laughing
Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Hopefully the shifting will improve!

No heroics, I promise.

Those who the gods would punish they first drive mad.

Woke up this morning dizzy, darn it. No cough, no fever, just dizzy. May have to delay that first ride :-(

Feel better after a nap. Ride's back on. Looks to be warmest around 3.

I'm really looking forward to terrorizing the city on the new Grom. No sidewalk or coffee patio will be safe from my reckless aplomb run amuck.

Ah, that was nice. Shifting is getting better. I think it's mostly the new gearbox. Pulls like a train, well, maybe two trains -- the mind boggles at a 48HP SSR! Bottom end is too rich and it takes a bit to clear. Will sort that after running it in. Speedo needs calibrating. I was getting flashing "199" and there was no way I was faster than 160!
