Rode into work today

We have a casual "Tigers" day at work today, so I thought I'd take one of the last opportunities to ride into work. Boy let me tell you, that was 50 miles of cold and damp riding. I really hope it warms up a bit before I go home. BTW, the Busa doesn't like cold weather.

What to you mean, the Busa doesn't like cold weather?
Mine likes cold weather a whole lot more than I do.

The idle on the Busa is supposed to be around 1200 RPM. What is your idle set to?

I live 2 miles NE of Lapeer and work on 11 mile in Southfiled. Needless to say, the house is for sale.

The busa came set at 800RPM idle from the dealer. I just haven't gotten around to fixing it. Temporary fix it just to leave it at fast idle on the handle bar.
