Pongo-Back on 2 wheels

Hey guys and gals.......Well I had a pretty good weekend. Nice BBQ Saturday and on Sunday I went and bought a new 05 Suzuki C50T fully dressed cruiser...full windscreen, saddlebags, and white wall tires...lol...This is my first cruiser bike since my Yamaha RD 400 I rode from the age of 15-17.....and that wasn't really a cruiser....more like a streetfighter/cafe racer of the day.....Anyway.....very comfortable to ride....I now know the difference between riding for fun and a pleasure to to ride....the ZX10R was just terrifically fun to ride where as the C50T is a pleasure to ride.....Big comfy seat, suspension is softer then my truck...lots of leg room, and very easy to have a passenger on. I'm very happy with it. This will tide me over until i'm further along with my recovery to get the track bike. I tried sitting on another ZX10R and still wasn't able to get my right leg up onto the footpeg without using my hand for assistance...so i'll have to give it another 6 - 12 mos before thinking about a sportbike.....My orthopedic surgeon said he would clear me to return to work around mid October....so i've got plenty of riding time...lol....I promised the wife i would take her up to Julian for some pie Saturday morning so anyone up around that area this weekend keep an eye out....although i won't be that hard to see on this bike..... I took her for a little ride around town yesterday and had to ocassionally reach back with my left hand to make sure she was still there.(first time in 16 years she didn't have to reach around me and brace her hands on the gas tank...lol....she was loving the fact that it had a backrest for her...I'll post up some pics later that i took but here is a pic from the Suz website of the exact model/color etc........don't flame me too much....
