Back in blue!

So after being hit by a drunk driver and having my 2016 totaled out, I finally came across a good price on a 2018. Itís blue, so it doesnít match my helmet or backpacks, but it does feel like itís got a bit more power than the 2016, and itís definitely smoother at low revs. Glad to be back!

Glad you're back. Did you get hurt much? Looks like you have the Michelin 5s on the older bike... like them?

Luckily I was fine, no damage to me. I have the 5s on there for a short time, I really liked them compared to the factory tires

They came with the bike since it was pre-owned, they are a cheap knockoff set of CRG mirrors Iím going to replace
