    What made my bike really happy is that I rode to and from work today, in temperatures below 100F.

    So, it was color-matched for the season? (Fall Camo)

    The bags are from our yellow Spyder, I just put Givi mounts on the VFR so I can carry things.

    Ran some fresh gas through the DRZ. Have not ridden much for a few months. And the DRZ not at all. My son has ridden it a little when he is home from school. Last time my son what home, the DRZ was bogging and coughing. It had sat for a while with a mostly empty tank. I attributed the rough performance to water condensation. So I filled it up with fresh non-ethanol gas and took it for a rip keeping RPMs a bit higher than usual. It was back to its normal self after then end of the ride. I now plan to keep the tank mostly full. And getting into the nice riding weather here in FL, it should not be as neglected.

    Yes, to keep machinery "in service," you need to run them.

    Yep, it's nice when those cold fronts move in and we dip down into the double digit temps.

    You're fortunate to have non-ethanol gas available. In SoCal if you even have a dream about non-ethanol they come and lock ya up. A major recreational mega-dealer had a seminar last year and various fuel additive reps were on hand. Interesting sales pitches but truth be told California gas is really bad, particularly the summer blends. I've used StaBil 360 for some years now and although it's difficult to acquire any empirical results it's cheap, easy to keep on hand and easy to pour an once or so in after each fill up. I've never had a fueling issue with any of my bikes. Just a thought

    The closest ethanol free fuel here is far enough away that you'll burn a full tank just to get to it.
