i lucked up today, i went to the bank and took out $2000, went to the dealer, and literally only a minute after i told the man i wanted to buy it and had cash, another man walks in and says he wanted to buy it. now i only have 500 left on principle and 32 dollars of interest, something to build up my credit. i made them throw in a helmet and some chain lube as well, i got a white HJC snell certified flip top. the problem is, i wear glasses all the time, and it’s nearly impossible to get them on my face with the helmet on. i have to let them sit between the outside of my ears and the helmet because there isn’t enough room to get the legs behind my ears. anybody else have this problem? it’s an XL helmet and the roomiest one they had.
regardless, i spent a couple hours riding and put about 70 miles on the bike today. even got it up to 70 one time, quite exhilirating. since i work at a golf course, i rode over the hills and practiced turning on the asphalt cart paths, and i feel i made a real improvement in my riding techniques. and lucky me, my mother is friends with a guy that taught MSF classes for ten years and works on harley’s for a living, he’s taught me a good bit as well.
perhaps i’ll write a full review of this little green monster sometime soon. thanks BBM, for helping me make the right decision.
