Wife's New Bike

Well I finally got a photo of my wife on her new bike. I have been working on setting it up just for her over the last few months with some help from Motorcycles Unlimited. Her lessons begin in a month or two when it cools off a bit.

Here is a short video summary of what I did to set it up for her.

Hopefully she will be out on some newb rides with us next spring.

Yep, they did the last few finishing touches for me including fitting the SS braided brake lines, lowering the front and changing from 5wt to 7wt fork oil.
