Congratulations! Be careful on your way home. There is a major side effect to riding a Wee, especially for the first time, that no one will publicly admit. Itís a tendency to forget your way back and riding the bike aimlessly for hours. Some have been able to fight this so called illness but it takes time to build up any kind of immunity to it.

Thanks guys, I know what your saying. It's a bit nippy today, only going to make it to 65. Seeing I have not farkled riding gear yet the extra miles on the way home may be short lived.

However, I'm sure the standing around looking at it part will be fun too.

when I picked up my new 1k a couple weeks ago, I had the dealer put my gerbings leads on when they built the bike so I had heat for the ride home, unfortunately I had to keep my ride home direct cause it was beginning to sleet

had me heated grips put on when I took it in for first service a few days ago, todaY was the first time I got to use them, Suzuki accesory heated grips are awesome IMHO, a lot better than the Hotgrips on my SV
