I got the chance (between rain drops) to get out and take a leisurly ride today. So far I have only ridin around town and to work, but mother nature decided to give me a break and let me go out and ride. What a blast. I have had problems with turns and curves but today gave me the time to go out and get more practice with them. I found that the more that I can control my speed in the curves the better the bike handles. I still have some problems with maintaining speed just going down the road though. I had check my speedo and was doing 55 few minutes later I looked and I had slowed to 48..oops. I sped back up and then looked again and 65 (55 speed limit, cop not to far behind). Just gonna have to get a better feel for what speeds feel like and get acustom to the variations in engine sounds. Fortunatly when I pulled into a coffee shop the cop just laughed and waved. Must be a biker:mrgreen:. Went about 65 miles out today and stopped at a Starbucks for a java and started to head back. The return trip was better and the curves seemed to handle better. The more I ride the better I feel riding. I am really starting to see what I have been missing out on.
