Land of 10,000 Lakes

Greetings from Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, the headwaters of the Mississippi, and miles of beautiful curving roads through pine and prairie.
Just over a month ago, picked up a 2003 VTX 1300 from the original owner with fewer than 3500 on the odo. A few warmer days later and I have my first 150 or so on myself and feel like I'm getting my cruising legs back again.
It's been a while, but previous bikes were CB900 custom and CB360T. I've had the chance to ride a VTX 1300 for a few hours over the past couple years, so that and some helpful reviews, and so I was feeling like I had a good find.
Thanks for the info on the site.

Welcome from the heart of the wasteland. You do have some beautiful country for riding up there. Came across the U P of Mich. (from east to west) across Wis. and down thru MN back in '09 on my wheel.

Thanks, much appreciated.
First things I did - oil&filter, of course. Then rear gear lube.
Next - coolant and brake fluid. Might do those both at the same time, once the tank is off, less chance to ruin the painting?
