Are you putting on the full exhaust or the slip on? I installed the slip on RS-5 last month and it took about two hours.

Not sure if I could get out on Sunday but id like to. Should be nice weather. I'm going to the Bears game Monday!

Same here. I have been watching the weather all week to see when it wasn't going to be raining to get some more riding in, not ready to put the bike away just yet.

Just a slip on, I love my two bros sound but I don't like how crooked the old style(the one I have) sits, bothers me too much. I've been able to do it in under hour, but now that I have the TRIPAGE led pegs/IT tail it'll take a little longer to get the rear cowl of just cuz I have to work around the wiring. Shouldn't be too hard I just HATE taking that cowl off, all those creaky noises when you are stretching the plastic lol.

Agreed. I just bought an A* balaclava and some thick thick motogp knee high socks to help with that! Lol.

I just wear under armor and some extra shirts. I found what makes or breaks me is if I wear a bandanna around my neck at night then I can handle the 30* temps

^ Yeah, I rode to work today but took off early to get home before the weather got here. Hate to say it but.....might be time to get her ready for storage.

Edit: Just watched the weather and it looks like they're not calling for rain anymore, just cold. Bike gets to stay out for a few more days at least! I don't mind riding in the cold but cold AND rainy is no bueno for me.

You waited for it to dry up....? Haha, when I put my yoshi on, on Monday, I still went and rode for an hour regardless of the wet and rain, I couldn't wait. Guess I'm too impatient :/

I rode this morning to work and forgot my balaclava at home. News said it was 33 degrees but windchill was 29 when I left. It was a little chilly on the highway but not too bad otherwise. Anyone else ride today?

How could you forget the balaclava? That's one thing that makes cold weather riding possible for me!

I rode to work today and plan to any day it doesn't rain until it starts snowing!
