I am still waiting on the bike title to arrive, but I rode it around the lot behind the office. Man… that is one hell of a powerful bike. Let it idle, let the clutch out, and it wants to go… and go NOW, and now is not fast enough! That will take some getting used to.
It is a long bike – 1/2 inch shorter than a Honda Gold Wing. I have never ridden a cruiser bike, so it is much different than any other bike I have ridden. Swept-back bars, contoured saddle, windshield are all new to me, but I think I will get used to it pretty easily. Dan suggested taking the windshield off to get a few bugs in my teeth and see how it really feels, so I just have to try that of course.
The speed will need to be kept under control. I am a ticket magnet and that could get rather expensive. Oh yeah, dangerous too and I sure as hell am not interested in that.
