When I realized how few miles I'd put on the VTX since the last issue I was humiliated to say the least, especially since I've been riding the thing at nearly every possible opportunity. The problem being that for one reason or another, those opportunities haven't been coming as often as I'd like. Unfortunately, that means the VTX has spent more time on the kickstand than on the road and that, in common parlance, sucks. What time I spent in the saddle has been put to good use. There was uh, the recent trip to the hardware store, and the ride out to my favorite ice cream stand, hey, quit smirking it's 60 miles each way, and then I err, rode to breakfast on Monday. Who I am I kidding? I haven't ridden enough miles these past six weeks to knock the cobwebs off the brake rotors, but at least I did get those Motosens gauges that have been sitting on the shelf these past few months bolted on. As you can read in this issue's How To, that went quite nicely and I'm very happy with them.
