    I figured about 100+ lbs difference. I'm content with my "T's" weight...600+ lbs is quite a difference.

    Welcome to the Forum. There are some wonderful people here... Until you talk politics... LOL...
    I hope you get it fixed. I also think it's a pretty big bike to start out on. I would suggest case covers, in case you ever have to pick it up! Also, saves your engine in some cases.
    I'm so very glad to see another female on this site. You are the only reason I have posted here in weeks! Good Luck!!!

    She hasn't been around in a few months, I think.

    Just as an aside, I have a student I've been working with. She's now 21 and from New Zealand. I met her when she was a new rider and wanted some help. Well, now she has 3 bikes , does track days and dirt rides, works on her own stuff. Last week she did her first top end overhaul on her KX100. Came out great. Bike rips. She's now helping other new riders, especially other women. I'm very proud of her.

    Thanks Patti, I enjoy helping out new riders. I have 3 now that have gone on to Big things. One went from 1 broken bike to now 4 that all run. Other is now racing in MotoAmerica and is a riding instructor. Taking the official class is just a start. I think I can help new riders learn quickly how to survive on the street. And how to improve their riding. I believe that the more proficient you are, the more enjoyment you get from riding.
