Finally got above 70 degrees F today so we got the old wing out for the first ride of the season.
Thanks to all the great how to articles and help on this forum the ride went without incident.
Took the bike into my workshop last fall and replaced the timing belts, odsysey pc680 battery, brake pads, brake fluid, shock seals front and rear and treated myself to a new seat cover. Also added a volt meter and some led lights to help out the aging eyes.
I get a faint whiff of antifreeze when at a stop sign, not sure if there is a small leak or if the overflow tank is overfilled, other than that the old wing rolled down the highway without any issues.
Wishing everyone a great riding season.

Your first ride went better than mine. I have had it running in the shop off and on for couple months. Today got her outside just idling getting it warmed up. She just died, gas was low so put some in tank. Still wont start. So now I have to spend couple hours this weekend and get her running again.
