I am the proud new owner of my 1st new “used” bike
1993 Yamaha Seca II – dark green metalic naked bike (will post pic’s soon)
I spent the weekend driving around our neighborhood staying mostly in 1st & 2nd gear (10-25mph) practicing and learning the basics before I attempt going above 2nd or leaving our neighborhood. Stops, Right hand turns, Left hand turns, Smoothly accelerating away from stop sign etc. We have one of those circle round about type things on the end of our street, so I even drove through that a couple of times. I haven’t taken MSF yet, but scheduled to go mid January. I did however take & pass the written motorcycle exam at DMV so I do have a valid learners permit good for 1 yr.
Some people claim the Seca II is not a powerful engine bike, and can be doggy – but thats cool with me for now – the less power I have available at my wrist, the better off I feel So far the bike is doing great for me as a beginner. Not too powerful on take off, and accelerates pretty steady & gradual & the brakes are not grabby.
