The bikes are beginning to come into this area
I heard about my bike a few days ago but the dealership he was too busy to get it out of the crate till I hope today is of course they were closed on Sunday and Monday
time will tell if I get that call today
I hope to go on a very long ride to break in the bike this coming weekend
again, to all of you, thank you for the encouragement
at 59 years of age I still feel like a little kid during the holidays at this moment

At the dealer and in the garage
Mounted the phone on the left handlebar
92 degrees outside
Will ride tonight perhaps

For a simple question: and have you found you had to adjust the headlights because they were too low when you bought the bike?
