You're be lucky.  That was my idea a week down the line since it was last out.  Totally wasted yesterday cutting the grass etc.  Today it's back to monsoon weather in Derbyshire.

With the mild Winter we had this year, I was never completely off the bike more than 2 weeks.  One benefit of Global Warming, I guess.

I ride all year round in the UK. That is one of the reasons I bought the RT so I could have a winter ride, rather than my Harley, which I still rode all year, but needed a bit of tic after each ride in the winter and lots of acf50.

Pushed the start button today, it started at the second attempt, all good to go.

Good to hear all these wake up bikes are ready for another Summer season. I've been very lucky here in the South this winter has been kind no snow, no floods and little in the way of ice. I often prefer winter rides than summer at times. Get a descent dry, crisp and clear day and it can be brilliant. Enjoy. :)

Have been out twice already on my Yamaha XJ650, did over 200 miles on both occasions.

The RT will be used for longer distances, or when 2 up, e.g. Centre of GB trip.
