I rode my new 1200X/CT home yesterday and I had to help my awesome wife with the house/chores so No riding for the rest of the day.......Today it's raining non stop! Finally, at 5 in the afternoon It’s stopped and I was off. I now have 114 miles on her and it would take a chisel to get the smile off my face. I love this bike. I need to stiffen up the front as I practiced stopping in an empty lot. Next Saturday ( weather permitting) I will be taking her in to get the maoko throttle lock. I also replaced my Old helmet to an Arai XD4 and it fits my melon. Question: I'll have to wait about 3 months but my first farkle should be: skid/bash plate or crash bars? Please post your thoughts, or should I get something else?
The title is soaked because it started to rain and it was fairly light until I got to my garage. I got royally pissed on backing this heavy bike into the garage- then I was trying to pull her back on the center stand and it was leaning to far towards me and I was cussing up a storm due to this bike not backing at all......then I noticed how off center I was..... it’s much easier pulling her straight back.
