First day with the new Husky

Just got my new Husqvarna 510 SMR after a botched delivery damaged the bike. Just need a new caliper to get it going and couldn't find one but Bobby at Houston Superbikes hooked it up with one off of a Duc 1098. Apparently it is compatible and after riding it I would definitely say that is does the job. This thing is a freaking riot. I was actually laughing in my helmet on the way home. The roads through my neighborhood rattle my kidneys on the blade but I can take them full blast speed bumps and all now. Came up on the railroad tracks on Beechnut and didn't even touch the brakes. Both wheels came off the ground where it drops off on the other side and I barely felt it. Already been chased off by two security guards for doing wheelies through parking lots and curb jumping. Reminds me of my skateboarding days. For riding around town this is hands down the funnest form of transportation EVER. After a while the sportbike gets a little boring for riding street. Hitting up the same turns, going 100+ on the freeway bobbing and weaving through cars but with this thing it's like learning how to ride all over again. The entire city is now a playground just like when I used to skate all the time. I wonder how long I will have my license?
