1st ride

saturday 5/19/12

2pm to 6pm

59 miles


mainly clovers and a traffic circle. did i mention 40 miles of nothing but clovers put a pretty good crick in my neck.

learning the new ride

break in:
they told me to ride it the way i wanted just don't red line it, don't hold the revs constant, don't break hard for a few miles and don't wreck. anything else should be fine.

trans is tight, seems to lockup coming to a red light if i don't fully engage each gear. then with no gear indicator, where the heck are you? not difficult but then i was having to fight down to 1st. it seemed to loosen up toward the end of the ride.

didn't get all the tires today but got over close to the edges. scuffed in at least so no more worries about the rubber.

Love that color scheme! For some reason I thought this scheme only came with the silver frame, which totally ruins it imo

2011's went back to the silver frame

i like the black frame better too, just luck though i was stuck with the leftover budget wise. i like the few times in life when i'm lucky.

thx
