Trailering and covers
Over the Thanksgiving weekend I decided to trailer my XC down to the gulf for a long weekend. I wanted to traier the bike because of unpredictable weather conditions. I'd bought a nice Alumna MC10 and planned to use the nice Victory cover. Well after a few miles on the interstate the cover had blown up over the front twice so I decided to just take the cover off. When I got to Destin I noticed several places on the fairing that were "blemished" by the flapping of the cover. So far I haven't been able to get them out. I had a nice thick coat of yellow wax on it before, but the really fine scratches may be a deeper than that. Just wanted to warn everyone else.
I will say that this bike gets stares and looks of awe everywhere I go. We stopped at Hog's Breath to get a bite and saw another black XC in the parking lot. Looked nice - the two of them next to each other. The owner was from Canada and we spent a bit talking about the XC and what a great bike it is. He'd ridden his down from Canada to Florida.
Oh well, any suggestions on getting the scratches out of the fairing are appreciated.
