First Motorcycle - Versys-x 300 Rider
Hello all, I just bought my first motorcycle (2018 Versys-x 300) on 2019 May 7. Completed my motorcycle course to advance my license to M2 on the following weekend. This allowed me to insure/register/license my motorcycle on 2019 May 13. So, I've been just riding mostly in town (Deep River, Ontario) to get used to moving, shifting, turning off my turn signal, etc. I did a few short stints on the highway, getting up to 110 km/hr. But, the bike is still in the break-in phase. The odometer reads about 350 km, 650 km to go!
On a side note - is it normal for a motorcycle to pass on the right tire track of my lane (I was in the left tire track, keeping up with traffic in an 80 km/hr zone)? I don't know if it makes a difference, but he was riding a Harley and it seems like he wanted to catch up with the Harley that was two cars in front.
