    I get my bikes treated with ACF50. Atomised spray after a thorough clean in November and it lasts all winter. Just need to wipe some areas with a microfibre cloth soaked in ACF50 after each wash.

    Brrrrrrr......Just a little chilly up in the Northern Panhandle of WV. (about 50f or 13c) The wife and I got out for a nice little ride through the country side...just in case the temps start dropping.

    Not in Canada my friends.... but we have ski-doos that are a lot of fun.

    My Capo will not see asphalt for another 4 to 5 months. It is well wrapped under a tarp.

    I will take the time in the winter to strip it down to the cylinder heads and bring it to the dealer (in a trailer) for valve adjustment, then back home to dress it up again. That will save me a bunch in labor for the 20k service.

    Have any of our UK members ventured out on their Capos yet this year? I was planning on Taxing my bike at the start of this month with a view to getting back into the swing of riding after the winter lay off, but the snow falls most of the country experienced last week put paid to that. It was quite nice here yesterday but this morning its grey and damp.......again. I'm also looking at getting a Tuono to sit alongside the Capo, but the s**t weather isn't getting me motivated to go and have a look at potential candidates.

    Throttle hand is itching too, just thought the salt had gone and they threw loads more down. Where in Durham are you Rigormoot? Not got Capo anymore, coolonthecoast has that pleasure now but still part of the V twin gang.
