Jason has been reminding me every day to practice riding. Work has been slow, so I’ve had plenty of time during daylight hours to get on the bike and ride. I’ve been staying in the neighborhood, though, practicing slow turns, counterbalancing, and gunning it to third gear. I only missed one day this week since getting Georgia back from the shop.
We took a ride out to Red Hook, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, a few miles from home. There’s one street where there are no traffic lights for about a 3/4-mile. I took advantage of this and accelerated as much as comfortable. Got up to 45 MPH in fifth gear.
We stopped at a bar called Bait and Tackle on Van Brunt Street and played Buck Hunter. I won.
Jason tells me that I lug the engine.
