  1. I want to get out on the highway with my new first bike so I can use all the gears and get the highway feel for the bike but I'm scared of staying at the same speed and not breaking in the motor properly. Guess I'll have to stay around the suburbs. It's probably safer out on the freeway going in one direction.


     
  2. Highway riding rocks.

    And so does the suburbs.

    Ain't it great to be on two wheels? :):):):):)
     
  3. Just change gears every couple of minutes or change your speed by a few km/h ever minute or so. No need to be constantly accelerating and decelerating just mix it up a little and you'll be fine.
