got my permit today, took it out. this is the first motorcycle i've ever ridden, took me no time at all to adjust, the balance, everything i love it. its back firing just a little bit when i'm off the gas, i'm assuming thats normal. how do i post pictures in my text??
tomorrow im gonna get a charger for my camera so i can get some good pics of it, i cannot believe how pristine this bike is, the only cleaner is showroom, its absolutely mint.
I threw a chain once. I was on my old Katana 600. I deliberately bunny-hopped a speed bump and suddenly I had six gears of neutral. Once I figured out what had happened I went looking for the chain, but it was nowhere to be found. I was only doing about 6 mph, so if a chain can disappear at that speed, then I don't even want to think what it could do at 80 mph+
Note: This was back when I was 20 years old, so fairly certain it was a junk chain that I never maintained.
