Hey all! I've really enjoyed browsing the forum, it helped me in many ways in approaching the purchase. The decision to buy one took me over like a sickness - I'm sure everyone knows exactly what I'm talking about!
Picking up my new Blue/Blue stick tomorrow - will try desperately not to leave two black stripes on the dealer's lot :D
Anyhow - let the fun begin! :cheers

Check your tire pressures, seal and wax her real good.....then have fun!!

Oh, and make sure you clean all of the cosmoline coating off of the wheels if the dealer didn't. Check the inner part of the wheels too, it will turn brown if you don't clean that stuff outta there.

Cosmoline is a preservative coating. If you look close you'll be able to see it. Dirt tends to stick to it. Congrats!!

Thanks, I'll check it out in the morning. How do you remove it? Is a solvent needed?
Windex window cleaner and a cotton wash cloth. Windex is ammonia based and is safe to use on the wheels. :cheers
