Took a little putt to get used to the new bike today, going to an 06 1500 classic from a 75 Honda 350, followed by a 31 year hiatous from riding, with the exception of a couple of short jaunts on military KLR's. I love the throttle control on the 1500, on the 350 the throttle had to be half open just to move, and the KLR just touch it and you're half way to Mars. Still waiting for the drifter brake lever. It may be my sasquash feet but I just cannot remeber to keep my foot behind the brake pedal, and evertime time I need to use the rear brake my foot is stuck under it. Other than that I'm still a little cautious on low speed turns due to the weight so I'm trying to do as many as I can find. Weather doesnt look good for the next few days. This is Canada and it's only mid April. We're being spoiled this year as you normally can't get out till mid May. We had hail yesterday and they're calling for snow tomorrow. On a differant subject I see what you guys are paying for insurance, and it's insane up here. The best I could find as I haven't ridden for a while is $1200 a year no collision after 5 years the best I'll be looking at is $900 without collision.
