At Last....The New Ride Arrived!!!!!

Well...the new Tomahawk FINALLY arrived. Took me about two hours to get it together. But I am still tinkering with it to get it "dialed in" for my personal tastes.

But I have to tell you....so far...what a GREAT ride!!!!!

Here's the links to a few photos....

Nice-looking ride! I wouldn't be surprise to see a few of these or the similar Javelins around my club next spring.

First ride out of the chute is going to be my commute to work today. Only seven miles so it shouldn't ba all THAT bad. Actually I am REALLY looking forward to getting on and riding. Maybe that's why I am up so friggin' early in the morning!!!!!!

Hope you remembered to take some lemon drops to work with you this morning. You'll need those to get that grin off your face.

No lemon drops. Just grinned all day long. Even while the folks at work were drooling......hehehe

Here's a couple of shots AFTER the ride today!!!!! About 20 miles round trip.....including that required stop at the bike shop.....only 5 miles out of the way!!!!!
