Getting a new bike is like going out on a first date.
All giddy and hoping that it's gonna go well. That you'll both get good vibes and that you'll gel. That you both, "get" each other. You hope that they don't have any lemon gremlins that will make them temperamental and high maintenance. That it will be the beginning of a beautiful relationship - where you are in charge & your baby complies .
Today I got to meet my new hubby straight out of a crate. Lawnmower version 2.0. Same same, except with less kms (younger model) and one v important improvement .... HEATED HAND GRIPS!!!
Half naked... Well. It IS a naked bike; still had some accessories still needed to be installed. Next time we meet, he'll at least be a bit more decent.
I'm antsy from so many cold days without being able to get on a saddle. I wonder if 2 wks is enough to loose riding fitness? 2 wks is enough to loose most your sanity tho!! ....
No matter I've got about another 15,000kms ahead of me to still cover so, at least I know this first 'date' will turn into more. View attachment 54970
