New Album for new bike and break in run

Guys
I was trying to post this with pics included but it kept failing. Anyway If your interested I have my pics up in a album. The Pics are of the new bike and my first run today. The break in ride consisted of a ride up glendora mountain ridge road to mount baldy... It was incredible. Beyond words. All I can say is thank God I was put on this planet so I could do things like what I did today.
I put the bike through some good paces without getting to crazy. I am of the school of thought that the cylinders and the motor have such tolerances that some good up shifting and down shifting will be best for the oil consumption issue in the long run.... Hope you guys enjoy the pics... Oh yeah the starbucks one thats a vital necessity for me in the morning so I had to add it in the mix......

Curiosity killed the cat.. But for a while I was a suspect.....

Checked out the pics, brings back fond memories. Used to live in Covina many moons ago. Glad you are enjoying your new mount. My best ride was up the 39 to East Fork and then over to Glendora Mountain Road and back into the valley or continue on to Mt. Baldy. Awesome. What an area to cut your teeth. There are many more great rides in the Angeles National Forest, I'm sure you will find them!!! Enjoy.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.
