Re: Well I did it!

Congratulations, you've made a great choice of bike but be careful, the Wee is a top heavy beast at the stops. I'd suggest some engine guards as a first farkle, they'll save your cowling when you lay it down.

Looks like someone got crash bars recently. You might want to send Don a message, Tim.

You are going to have so much fun on that bike! at your height, i think you'll be aware of the top heaviness, but not too terribly affected by it. just be careful making u turns against an uphill slope! that's been my albatross on the 'strom. They'll give you all kinds of great advice about this stuff in your class.

I'm looking forward to reading more about your journey!!

Re: Well I did it!

Roxxie I had not even thought about that but when you mentioned the U turn on an uphill beads of sweat started forming on my forehead! So my question is...how do you do it successfully?

thanks G1, I'm nervous about doing this but at the same time I just keep smiling to myself

Pretend it's flat, commit to the turn and go all the way through the turn without stopping. It's not a real problem, it only looks like one.
