I know the water wasn't deep, but I'd likely take that pedestrian bridge on the left anyway!

It is 20cm in places and hides countless potholes, I am not riding a brand new bike through it.

So there!

I may have modified the airbox when she wasn't looking though.

Finally got a test sit on one of these at the Spokane motorcycle show today. What an awesome bike!!! If you can sit on one of these and not have a smile instantly plastered across your face, you are dead.

I have no use for one, living 6 miles from the nearest paved road and 50 from the nearest city, but dang I want one!

Oh, the only bad thing that I noticed was the seat. Vinyl covered 2x4.

:Norton They work great on gravel road. Just lower the tire pressure to 20 psi.

Yesterdays Quote of the day from my wife, "This working on bikes stuff is kinda fun." The tail rack and fender elimination kit arrived yesterday. She was like a kid at Christmas! It was really funny. She wanted to help do the install. So we tidied the tail, added the rack, and changed the blinkers all the way around.

For those that have significant others that are on the fence about riding, or need to get reinvigorated about it, this is a great little bike for that. I'm watching her confidence increase each time she rides. She's looking for excuses to take it out.

I sat on one there yesterday as well. I wish I had the money to pick one up because it would be a hoot to rip around parking lots and back roads! It is freaking tiny though.

Ya know, it was strange. I'm 6'0 and about 160 and it didn't feel overly small to me. I was thinking it was going to be like sitting on an old z50 but it really didn't feel much different than my Ninja 250. A shorter, naked Ninja 250, but the seat height was just about the same.

I felt that way about it too. But it really was a lot of fun to ride. The seat was the only drawback IMO.
