First Ride

Finally. I took the bike for a spin yesterday for the first time since the rebuild. I feel like a new man. Even though the carb needs tuning (most likely re-jetting), I could definitely feel that it has more pull.

It's still all raw of course. My love and I are moving to a new place (with a hot tub) at the end of the month so I figured I'd be easier to drive the bike to the new spot rather than carry it in boxes. But once we get to our new home, I'll tear it down and powder coat the frame and have the tins painted. By then, I'll have some bugs worked out and some minor details smoothed.
