Howdy folks,

Last Saturday, I picked up my new Candy Matte Orange 650 LT, and I am loving life. Can you tell from that grin on my face down below?

The weather is a bit warm at the moment for mid-day rides (looking at 120 degrees next week), but early morning and late evening rides are smashing!

Get a light colored mesh jack and helmet and the heat won't be as bad....Black holds heat. Grew up in Texas. Made the mistake of buying a black car once....

Thanks! I bought it up near Sedona, and for my maiden voyage, I rode it 170 miles down through some of the most beautiful high desert country. My last bike was a Yamaha V-Star 1100 cruiser, and this new ride is quite different from that. I'm not used to sitting so high and my feet tucked back. But I can already tell, as soon as I change out this seat, this is going to be a fantastic ride for some serious touring!

Try SEARCH for raising the front of your seat (a $2 mod, rather than a SEVERAL $100s one).
