New Member, New bike.

Post by jasoneagle » Wed Dec 16, 2020 1:55 pm

Hi there!

I picked up a 2016 Gear Up last weekend from a guy in Iowa and rode it home (live near Rochester, MN). So far, really digging it. Already ordered and waiting for parts to convert headlight to LED, a new bucket to make the spotlight a driving light, have some heated grips on order and some bar mitts. I have 3 kids and have been practicing flying them in the chair a bit. I must be getting old, because I never thought 40 Hp could be this fun! :D I created a shared folder on my google drive- will see if it works here..https://photos.app.goo.gl/nBHDrY4hR7jnngXx6
Anyhow- wanted to introduce myself. This looks like a good site with a lot of info. I plan to do all my own wrenching. Happy Holidays everyone.
