Am I demented?

This weather is pitiful, so I've just been going out to the garage and sitting on the R6. I also have a rear pit bull stand and sometimes I mess around and hang off the bike, too. Does that make me crazy?

You guess???? It would help a ton because it would allow me to actually RIDE the bike. Don't you know that riding cures all mental problems???

when I first got my bike....bought it in November and couldn't ride. I did the same things often. So either you're fine or we're both nuts. Either way, you're OK in my eyes!

You know the old saying..... the only difference between a man and a boy is the price of his toys.....

Hell, when I first bought my bike I woulda brought it in the house, if the wife woulda let me.

YA THINK???

Cap you are not crazy.. Just itching to ride..

You know what solved it for me this year? The damn lock froze on my shed so I can't even get to the bike - that is without heating up or dethawing the lock.. Problem solved..

If anyone sees you, tell them you are setting up the bike. Then actually do it. You probably can't adjust the bars, but you can adjust the brake pedal and shifter for comfort and quickness. If you rotate the brake pedal make sure you adjust the brake light switch (if the new bikes use them).

I'm glad I can at least provide some humor for everyone.

No Worries: I've already adjusted things to my liking.
