First ride of any length
« on: July 15, 2012, 01:41:51 AM »
Yesterday i took the Crossrunner out for my first ride of any length.
300km from Sydney, through the Royal National Park, down to a town called Berry for a Pie, and then a 140km ride back up the freeway home.

So I learnt a few things, Like the ABS works, had a hairy moment on the first hairpin in the national park :005:, I can also see the need for the bigger screen, especially when traveling at highway speeds 110km/h+, and my arse goes numb after 250km. I also love the snarl of the v-tec.

Im still getting used to the bike, and i feel like im slower at the moment than I would be if I was still on my 250. But its just having confidence in the bike. And the only to get that is to ride it more often :007:
Oh Sh*t!' is usually the moment when your plan parts ways with reality
