Yes, I just dropped it off last week. Getting my pipes put on, my seat installed, and floorboards for the wife. I hated to store it so early but we have a 1 stall garage and the wife was thinking it was time for her vehicle to use the garage. ( her vehicle gets the garage in the winter, My bike gets it in the summer)

I am also thinking about putting that Cobra Powerpro on. Still on the fence about it though. Need some more information.

Hey, have you done the ground fix or the Desmog on your bike?

I haven't put mine away yet, dragging my feet this year... my brother bought the 1800C I had and he put his away about a month ago, and last I saw, Thanksgiving day is suppose to be sunny and 53, so I am going to ride it over just to rub it in! After that, I will probably get it put away. Your wife will appreciate the floorboards, I know my wife said it made a big difference for her. As far as the desmog and the ground fix, to be honest I have not done it, nor have I looked to see if previous ower did it. I will have to look, but, for the way it sounds, I am thinking that the desmog was done, it has a nice low rumble to it, and that is usually one of the benefits to the desmog. Did the ground fix on the C I had. Also, had a thought about the Iowa riders getting together, and mind you, just a thought. I know it may be a slim chance that this would work, but it would be so cool, if we could meet up this summer and ride out together to the Colorado ride, the Coloradical. Be a great ride together to an awesome event, and to show up as a group.

Des Moines rider here. I am thrilled that I was able to get over 100 miles in over the past 2 days. Would love to get with other riders this next year!

Well, we are almost into February boys... any more ideas? Last year I thought the Ledges down by Ames would have been a good place to meet, grill and get a chance to talk etc., then go ride. The other thing I thought of too, do we want to make this a 1 day event or 2?
