Thanks for the warm welcome.
I just got back from some two lane tooling, and yes, of course I had to twist the throttle up a few times. LOL all I can say is the torque is IMPRESSIVE, I've not ridden anything so mighty in that respect. Very cool.
Bike has 14194 miles, so I expect to have it around until I'm old, or need a sidecar. Yesterday I ordered a Clymer manual so I have some reads, and if ever needed have on hand.
