"Katerina" is finally at her new home!

Rode all over the neighborhood getting used to each other.

Tomorrow is the extended ride day.

Pic below. She is a good looking girl.

First bike in 25 years and I am really excited.

Check all lubricant levels and tire pressures before venturing too far from the barn. Might be a good idea to ride with a friend. And take your cell phone and dress for the ride... ATGATT.

Nice tidy looking LS. Good to see one with the black pipes, as mine has to wear a chrome pair until I can source a pair of stock pipes. Welcome aboard.

Just a thought, can you Parkerize Stainless Steel? If you can I might be tempted to go black.....
