Newb Alert

New(to me) bike today. Bought it from a friend, who rode it twice. Going to tear it up this weekend! Let me add that I am totally new to the sport.... so this is all very new to me.

He said only twice and I had a very good friend of mine who rides a lot to verify (who is also going to be a mechanic soon). I need some shorts, gloves, helmet and I'm ready to roll!
