Well, I finally rode out of my neighborhood on Friday, after work.
I’d been waiting for licensing and insurance.
It was in the 40’s and not really warm enough but I was only going down the street to the drug store.
The ride made me wonder two things:
“What’s first gear for?”, and “where’s sixth gear?”
I think I may be looking for some gear changes.

Quite few people here changed the rear sprocket to a 47 and helps a little. Myself included. That low gear in first will help off road tho. You can modify the engine to accept a 6th gear but requires a lot.... of work and $$.

Naptown has kind of flat terrain flat for first gear with stock sprockets. A low first gear really only comes into it's own in steeper country. So go ahead and try a smaller rear sprocket to increase overall gearing.
Welcome!
Now go ride some more and have fun before things get frozen again.

I run PBI 16 tooth front all gear changes I'll ever need on a TW can be accomplished up front with a range from 11 tooth to 16 just look at any sprocket chart and tell me what you can't do and you can run the OEM chain length

Running that 16 up front was tough at MOAB on the rock shelf steps but still made it

I'd go back to 15 or 14 for Utah when I go there again
