NEw to me

Well, it took almost two months but today the Canyon Red 2000 pulled up to the house in a big Keyboard Freight truck. Check them out. They got it down pat. Piddled with it a bit and then went and rode it 50 miles. Big ass bike. Going to take some getting used to. The wind was blowing 90 mph all day. Not a great day for a first ride but I had too. Had to raise the seat and stick an Air Hawk seat pad on it to get me up high enough to keep from feeling like I am squatting on a Kiddie Kar. The bike is pretty close to mint but a100 miles away from needing the 12K. Also that Canyn red is gorgeous. I think that efr I bought it from decided he'd ride it a little more before he got it sent. Already bought the Beemer Boneyard maintenance package, a Clymer book, and a Kendon lift so I'm ready for winter entertainment.
I will say, the more big fancy bakes I ride the more respect I have for my Burgman Executive.
Pictures when I get caught up.
One question: is there supposed to be a little indicating bubble in the middle of the sight glass when checking the oil on the side stand?

Re: NEw to me

Congrats on the New to you Bike.
Also A big thumbs up for Keyboard. They have moved bikes for a few friends plus they Long Haul for many of the dealers here in Austin.

Re: NEw to me

The oil gets checked on the center stand. It should be center to the top of the glass after it has time to drain down. Congrats on the bike. It'll certainly grow on you.
