Went for a quick blat out of town today. Fully leathered up and felt absolutely great. Good learning experience with crosswinds and such. Got the nod from several other riders along with several waves from random cagers. Stopped for a drink at the Swanpool General store and had many onlookers checking out the bike. Really enjoying the ride and improving all the time. Kicking myself that I didn't do it years ago. Light misty rains kept me from any semblance of complacency and I really wish I could've kept going.
