Wow, you rode your bike all winter? Where do you live?
I found that it is good flip the cables on the brakes so that it is 'american-zed'. I am used to riding a european moped, but sometime other poeple ride my mopeds and don't know that they are switched around and crash on loose gravel and stuff cause they think they are cranking the rear brakes.
The only cool damage I have gotten so far is burns from the muffler - trying different stuff to make it go faster and then reaching down to adjust something - ouch!
