Can't wait to hit the road.
Finally got it licensed and insured, got it running pretty good. Took it out for a shakedown run today and had a great ride! These bikes (this one anyway) rin right down the road. I took a long loop with back roads, city driving and back on the freeway. Smooth, stable and power to spare. If I could get figure out how to keep the fairing from vibrating I'll be in the black!
Total investment so far, $437.00. That includes purchase price, miscellaneous hardware, chemicals, license and 6 months insurance. Bet I could sell it for a little more than that!
