Rode again today.48degress when we left

54 degrees on the way home. Got to be really careful.Tire`s can`t warm up to stick. Could be worse for the 5th of December in Missouri. Bought a used Brocks A2 slip-on for the h2 that was mint.Waiting for Brocks full systems to be available again. The stock muffler is stupid heavy.The slip -on is 3.75 pounds.

2000 zx12r 60,500 mile( Now 0 mile 2003 brand new engine} street bike 9.6`s in the 1/4 a few times.My 2012 14r stole me away.9.1 so far..Now my H2 piss`s on everything.It tried to flip me shifting into 3rd gear.

I've still been riding several times per week. I don't commute so they are all fun rides. It's been any where from high 30's to low 50's. The concours does great here enough power to have traction and fun and big enough shield to keep the wind of me. And I still see your 130mph when the road conditions are good.
Ride safe
Lou

........and THAT is the reason I don't take my 12 out on days under 60°f anymore. Cold tar and sport tires don't mix. Add in gravel and leaves and you got a recipe for an empty wallet....

Sounds like you are a good candidate for a bike with some electronic controls.

It's never a good thing when you have to tow the bike back home I feel for ya. Looking on the bright side you are still whole.
When you are ready to put that beast back together get in touch with me I have all the parts you need.
