    Cool New Xtremelow Lightning

    Well believe it or not I bought a 2007 XBS12 from a dude in Connecticut, kicker is I live in Phoenix. So like any normal motorcycle guy I bought a 1-Way Flight met up and finalized the sale on the bike and now I'm chilling at IHOP in Indiana 750mi into the 2300mi ride home. 😎😎😎 Get warmed up, grub in the gut and jump back on the bike for a couple more tanks of gas before I stop to sleep somewhere in order to miss the Sunday morning drivers.

    Took a slight detour right off the start to drive by and see Ground Zero, knowing the wife wants to go I decided to just drive by and only stopped for one pic. My shop hat is proof for coworkers doubtjng I would do the 2300mi trip.

    I would go for a 4or5 star Hotel with room service.

    Make sure they have a microwave or at minimum a clean iron for warm grup in the gut.

    Least you could have done was mention it, could've met up for some good pizza in NYC or whatever and covered your ride part way, just in case. Congrats on the new bike and safe trip.

    Finally home! Biggest issue was the damn shifter bolt backed out and having no tools and being stubborn I drove the final 1000mi with only 5th gear.

    Time to let my body heal, sleep till I work in the AM and oh yeah let my body heal.

    No feeling in my right thumb, index, or middle finger. Drop Foot in my shifting leg, both arms burnt like hell from day two sun (dumbass) and some ass rash.
