I'm still waiting for the TPS to come in. It's back ordered from Yamaha. Lesson learned, before ordering over the Web make sure it's in stock!

Finally a nice day

Finally a nice day here in Nashua, NH. First time riding with my wife. She loved it! Thought I’d share this pic of my Yam at Parker’s Maple Syrup Barn. Nice place to ride to and have breakfast.
