    Don't be this brand new bike owner...

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I will not worry about taking my new bike home. It is going the be shipped direct to my home. It should be here about the new year or so.
    That way I can fall off in the privacy of my own yard

    Poor guy, and he looked so happy just before with all his new shiny gear. Secret is don't let your friends video you, and if they do try to burn the evidence before it goes viral.

    I didn't go down, but sure found out that new tires are slippery. Came out of the tire shop and throttled it to merge into traffic. Back tire broke loose while in lean. I collected it up, but sure gave me a lesson. I did however do a good burnout right after that. Needed to scuff it a bit.

    Plumb, you are such a responsible rider "Gee Officer, I swear that burnout was just for safety's sake"

    That video is the reason Yamaha installed ABS on the TW! (Anti-Burnout System) Mine works great, except on an icy driveway. Might be a bad wheel sensor.
