New Bike, First Ride.

Hello my Brother Clydes and Beautiful Athenas! This is my new Bike and my first ride! I got my new Trek 7.3 fx today at lunch time and could hardly wait to get home! The ride was fantastic! There is nothing like riding a new bike! I did 8.5 miles, highest speed 16.1 mph, only averaged 9.5 mph though but it was fun... I was surprised because the seat wasn't that bad....I guess the bike shorts did the job. Pics are of a local lake/park that has a trail. Special shout out to Qmsdc15 who pointed me in the right direction during the process of buying this wonderful bike!
