Just a question: why make a bike that weight almost a ton with a plastic gear rack that can not hold many pounds, does not make sense on a touring bike.
Jealous at people that think this bike is smooth and got no bad vibrations, wish you could feel my hands at the moment but I`m confident with some engine break in and some adjustments it will be better in the future.
Overall better bike than I thought it would be, great in the bends and good power.
I generally ride wearing bicycle full finger gel gloves. They're light form fit great and have
gel inserts in the palm. Use the fingerless when it heats up.
