Okay, first ride.
We actually took the maiden voyage with capt's seat not tightened AND the front handlebars
not tightened down.
We went to the elementary school across the street and rode in the parking lot for
20 minutes or so. Figure 8s over and over, getting used to the way the bike could
lean, coasting and going, me closing my eyes a bit to feel how to not steer.
Then we tightened things down (makes STOPPING easier!) and went out again.
Just a mile out down a hiill (Holy Chite do we go fast) and then back up the hill.
We powered pretty well.
We do have a small problem though. When we coast, then go again, something in the
chain (skip, miss, ??) makes a noise and the pedal feels like it advances a bit or like it shifted gears.
It DIDN'T but it sounds like it did. Kinda hard to explain.
Have ya'll ever feel/felt/found this and what is it?
So far, I think I can do this. I didnt know how apprehensive I'd be.
I've got motorcycle experience so I don't rear-stear but this will take a few rides getting
