    I am staying out in Rochester for a while ( the flooding around Lake Ontario) I seen a Red 1st gen fri after noon close to the staples on 104 Greece and heard 2nd gen V-max wed night while sitting at TC Hooligans (love the distinct exhaust signature). I have my truck up here for now because of all my gear, hopefully will get a chance to bring up my V-max..When I do if the weathers nice who wants to get together and go riding.

    The red gen 1 was mine. LCR performance was doing some troubleshooting of the charging system. Unfortunately I live in buffalo so no Rochester rides for me :(

    Oh its a nice bike I seen it, heard it, it caught my attention. Yeah I had some charging issues with mine last year I got them figured out ended up being a bad R/R which cooked the stater so I replaced the stater and R/R no more charging issues.

    Hey, I'm down for a ride. Live in the Corning area, but commuted to Victor all of last year, so long rides are not out of the question. Plus, I need a good run on my new seat.

    Cool! Just got home from picking someone up at the airport. No Max today; however, I drove through a nasty storm near Dansville that reminded me of riding in a bad storm in Texas many years ago. Super heavy rain and wind.

    Probably will ride to work tomorrow, not sure about an afternoon ride, there's a government project that needs attention to get ready for the weekend. Picking up a bunch of equipment from a hobby machine shop, hopefully. Now the mod monkey will have fabrication capability!!

    Oh, man. Missed you guys.

    Ended up riding out to Allegheny NF Saturday afternoon. 278 miles total. Really good ride along PA49 and part of 6, then into the east side of the forest below the reservoir.

    The Max got 44.97mpg!! Out friggin standing!!! Best ever. Ran three tanks with Seafoam through it to smooth out the dirty bits in the idle circuits. I noticed that the first tank, even before the Seafoam, was just a tad over 2 gallons and 90 miles. I thought this was a fluke, so I checked again and calculated the second tank at 44.97 which is crazy. I've been getting about 33mpg riding back and forth to work, but that's only 6 miles each way.

    Oh, and the new seat from Sean is really good. I was still sore when I got back, but my hips didn't feel like they were going to split apart. Now to get some highway pegs installed...

    Before Larry opened LCR, he worked for a friend of mine from Scottsville. Larry has a lotta stuff in that space, anything you want done, he's gonna be able to do it. Did you notice all the frames hanging from the top of the back wall?

    I bought my 97 in Tioga for $2,500. With just over 10,000 miles on it. I'm from around Watkins Glen area originally, I now reside in SC. Better weather. I'll be up in two weeks to visit friends and family for a week. Trailering our bikes up, my 18 max, and the wife's v star 1100. Hopefully it's nice weather, has been the last two years we been taking our bikes. Funny reading this thread my old stomping grounds lol.

    Scottsville!!!! I had an uncle that was a fireman in scottsville, what a small world. This was prolly 20 years ago. I remember him taking me and showing me the fire house, and the trucks and Playing pool, it was fun. Actually rode through scottsville last year on our annual vacation to NY. What a small world, lol.
