The first day I had my bike ,I filled the tank and bags and went for a ride, and wow, I wasnt completely ready for the top heavyness. Now though ,It feels normal,like any bike...untill of course I went for A small creek crossing last week and the bike stalled on me halfway through, and would not start, I hopped off to push my way through (about knee deep...much deeper than last time i was there...darned beavers...once I hopped off,the tires floated out from underneath and down she went. I pulled her out just in time to keep water out of the pipe...and splooosh ...round two, and three, and four...the pebbles and rocks kept washing away from under me and the bike.
Finally after standing her up again, and taking a minute to collect myself, I did the full throttle start for a minute and she turned over, and I walked the bike out. so fun.
