O Baby!!!....freedom at last....again

so, i FINALLY got my bike out of the shop today   went a couple days ago to get her, but once i got there, she wouldn't start   well they had to re-do the wiring    so i pick her up today   i het the road...and WOW...what a difference the major tune-up and new parts made   (when they brought her out, she was sounding a whole lot better)   when i rode her, she hauled ass with just a touch on the throttle   on that back road i found myself going 10mph over the speed limit without even knowing it until i looked down at the speedometer   whoa baby!!   she runs like she's brand new   i had no idea she could perform so well for a 12yr old bike   who needs a new bike   i have no doubt now that she can make it to either Spokane, WA or Kentucky next summer   the long road trip is destined   kept thinking i had to wait til i got that new bike with more power   damn, after today, don't need it   it'll be nice whenever i eventually get it, but my baby now is AWESOME!!!   next winter i'll put her in the shop to get ready for the long road trip    Brian, my service man, says she'll need new tires and probably by mid-summer this year she needs new rear brakes   we'll check her out completely this time next year to make sure she's safe for the haul   i'm just E.C.S.T.A.T.I.C. with her now   road trips here i come this summer!!!!   will take a road trip on her possibly as early as next weekend, if not 2 weeks away    this summer is already a blast   i know we just Springed forward...
