I went for my first ride out on the Tdub this afternoon!
My title came through (bought it from a guy in Alabama who moved there from Arizona, last title was in Maine, I'm in Tennessee....) so I thought I'd celebrate with a quick blat around to decobweb myself & get used to riding again. It's been 14 years, nearly, since I was last on a bike & probably more than 30 since i rode something this slow & small! 😆
I reverted back to being a 16 year old on my first moped, crouched & tucked behind the bars, eyes fixed on the speedo willing it to hit 62 (35 in moped speeding fame...) Haven't had so much fun in a long time! I'd forgotten how cold it gets across the throat when it's chilly though(41° & sunny here today)
I just ran a quick 30 mile, back road circuit, making sure everything I'd done to her was working correctly & nothing important was going to fall off (parts or me!)
Very comfortable cruising at 55 & I reckon it'd do that all day long. 60 is wringing it's neck. 61 was a bit downhill (although my grin was surely catching as much wind as my not-suitable-for-riding-a-bike jacket!)
I'm Incredibly happy with it & i can see putting on a ton more miles than I ever intended, when i bought it as a road legal alternative to an ATV, for hunting!
