My initial report, upon a few more days of reflection, on the rebuild is all felt normal in the 20 miles return to home from the dealer. The bike felt one with me, immediately, just after the clutch was released in the dealer parking lot; absolutely serious; first thing the wife mentioned, after she arrived home long after myself, as I asked her to wait until my launch, just to reinforce EXACTLY what she already wanted to do, (she has ZERO bike sense whatsoever but does have that female intuition thing, which gets in the way; indeed, while I was suiting up, she gave the 'Do I have to expect to see you broke down on the side of the freeway" with attitude, hands on hips combined with swagger; lol, oddly, loved seeing the wife of age 22) was the bike looked at ease; she knows more than she lets on, for sure ; totally together;
this will sound korny to anyone but those that push super bikes to past 70% of rider ability given safe conditions: the bike welcomed totally welcomed resurrection with me at the helm. It jumped at every opportunity and wanted more; exactly the zen of our sport.
However, I have freezing conditions on part of my loop right now; no ride possible for me until conditions are proper. So today I drove the wife to Safeway Market, Whole Foods Market, Trader Joes Market and to top it off to her 3D breast check up.
Family guy when things are not all good on the loop!
