Yeah my daughter is my favorite passenger as well. She has been fascinated by motorcycles ever since she was tiny, she is now 12 and goes every chance she can get. Me knowing that she loves to ride I had to make it a point that she will ONLY ride with daddy

Since it won't quit raining, I'm doing clean up work. Wash, wax, and polishing chrome. Fun, fun, and then sum.

I winterized my "S" today. Filled tank with gasoline and Stabil. Changed oil and filter, waxed painted surfaces and chrome, and connected the battery to the maintainer. In a couple of weeks I will be in Florida and will be riding my "F".

I'll gladly watch over your S any time. Just let me know and I'll keep it safe and sound. I'll even start it up once and a while, go around the block (my blocks are several miles wide)..... but I'll treat her like she was my own.
