Picked up my new bike today..

Post by Gedge » Fri Apr 22, 2016 7:12 pm

Not a traillie but I may well end up making some changes to make it into a retro style scrambler....compared to my last few bikes it feels very small, and being able to put my feet flat on the floor with my knees bent, takes some getting used to....

Had a nasty wet ride home from the dealers, but went the long way which was enough to feel that the bike was punchy for a mid sized bike and the handling very reassuring...so far I dislike the bars..too high and too swept back..I've moved them to feel right but they still don't look right, so that will be the first change...already removed the pillion pegs and hangers....

Just got to run it in now.....

Made all the more scary by finding out before setting off that it's not actually legally road registered until Sunday....( although it is on askmid, and DVLA databases.....)
