Hello! Just got my first bike today and I’m quite happy with the purchase. I plan to take pictures pictures later of course. How is everyone else?August 19, 2008 at 2:36 pm #10760WeaponZeroParticipant
Nice bike I’ve got a thing for japanese standards/UJMs.
Shaft drive is nice too, low maintenance.
Doing crappy because I’m at work lolAugust 19, 2008 at 4:06 pm #10765
Yeah, I’m very pleased with it so far. The seat was actually cut down to about 27″ so it’s got a lower center of balance for me which has been a BIG help. I tried an old Virago 900 and ended up laying it down before I could even get going because of the weight and high seat. I’m 6′ even but it was too high even for me.August 19, 2008 at 7:00 pm #10785BuddParticipant

Yep, I took my MSF course, and learned all my lessons the easy way so far.
I got all my gear long before ever getting the bike as well. Though I may need a better pair of gloves. I do like the ones Ben is using currently so I’ll see about getting a pair myself.
