    Got me my first bike!

    After getting my license this past summer and renting a couple of bikes or riding my brothers I finally got my own first motorcycle, a Yamaha XJ 600 S Diversion. It is not new but in very good shape. There is only one problem left: it is winter and definitely too cold and icy to ride it. Not to mention the snow. Well, I guess I have to wait until spring is around the corner for that and I am sooooooo impatient. Now I really wish I would live i.e. in Florida and not in Germany. Guys, I am the happiest woman in the world

    Congratulations! I've been waiting for you to tell us you finally got your own bike. Take care riding in the winter... Warmth is important so you don't go into hypothermia. I know it might be hard to do, but the best thing may be to park it until things thaw out.

    Nice looking bike by the way... for a rice burner. I promise to pick up the rice you spill out of your pocket when you bend over to help me clean up the oil I drip on the parking lot

    It is a very nice motorcycle. I sugest you take the legs off the dining room table and tip it into a corner of the dining room. That leaves lots of room to wheel the Yamaha XJ 600 S Diversion into the dining room. Guests can hold thier plates on their laps while they admire your motorcycle and have interesting motorcycle conversation.

    Thanks Big! I know it took a little time but as mentioned before I was visiting for months every biker shop and did a lot of testing until I found what I liked and more important something I felt compfy with.

    Don't need to worry me riding the bike in winter time - I am not that crazy, too dangerous for a beginner. I'd rather take my SUV and keep warm.

    Btw, it's a done deal in regard to your oil problem as long as you make sure you get really all of the rice - because I love to eat rice.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks CC! I must admit you are a very creative person. I do like this dining table idea and I have plenty of room for that too. I can look at my baby every day until spring is around the corner and won't suffer too much until I can ride it again. Besides the topcase could be used for wine/beer bottles. Yeah, that 's the way to go.

    Storm, I knew you would like it after knowing you prefer Yamahas. Yeap, the topcase comes in pretty handy and can be used for a lot of things. I am sure I will be back to the US and Florida but I doubt that I would bring the bike along. I am sure I can rent one and than it's on. I'll keep you informed.
