I F*Kn Love it - First Ride on 2 Wheels

OMG.. I feel like a fucken kid but . Some will laugh at me but I dont care. Took the new bike to my friends house about 7 miles down the road. About a 10 min ride there but I got to flirt with traffic for the first time ...and at night to boot. Its fucken cold but I didnt care. Never got above 50 but it was still cool to me.

The ride over I was a little shaky and could feel I was a walking in the lane a little but the ride home was a little more comfortable. I gotta do some work on my shifting down and using both brakes but taking off and shifting up was no problem .. clutch on this is so smooth. I am slowing down to soon which I guess is not a bad thing right now but in heavy traffic I could see people getting so I need to find a parking lot and work on my down shift and braking.

This is gonna be so much fun.

Well I got the bright idea of taking it out at night for the first time.. but gotta do it some time... and I will be damned if I didnt get to encounter my first object lying in the road.... there is a concrete place down the road and I guess one of the trucks had a huge clump somewhere it was covering pretty much the whole lane of traffic .. so I had to go over it.. just move back on the seat and took it at about 25 but I was surprised at the suspension it didnt really kick it just rolled over .. I was expecting a jump from the back tire but it didnt happen. At least I was ready for it.
