Cannonball friend Ken (Lostboater) lives in St. Petersburg. He loaned me some minor tools while on the Cannonball Run that I didn't get back to him before we parted in New Orleans. So it felt like a good excuse for a ride. Then Suellen (Tupelosue) said she was visiting the area this week to see some cousins.
I decided to visit and see them both on the same trip and have been trying to decide on the machine to take down. I have been having the full throttle overheating issues with Rocket so riding that one is questionable. The Honda is new, fast and very reliable so riding that would be easy. If the weather is bad, I might have to take the Miata.
Ken has now decided to try to repair his GTS, Big Red, and needs to know some measurements around the right cowl so he can tell the extent of the damage from the accident in that area. Because GTs and GTSs are almost identical in that area, it may help him to have the two scooters side by side for the comparison.
The weather looks good so I will probably throw caution to the wind and ride Rocket down. Just stay off full throttle for any distance and see if it can survive the ride.
