    Greetings from Minnesota

    I just bought  a new 2017 VFR1200X.  It was  holdover model that I paid 10k + tax, title and fees.   It is one hell of a bargain and so underrated! 

     I drove it home on 1/29 after work.  It was a balmy 24F (-4.5C).  I will need to install some hand warmers!  I am looking forward to summer so I can get out and enjoy this awesome bike.

    does it have heated grips? - then some fitted "big mittens" might help. Or be less brave and wait until Spring!

    I have a set of Heat Demon internal bar heaters sitting on the shelf that I am planning to install soon.  I bought them for a previous bike and never got around to installing them.   The nice thing about them is that they work with any grips you want to use.   They are made by Symtec right here in Minnesota.
