Didn't get around to wrapping the parts, as they where a little trickier than I thought but I will tackle them later.
Given I don't know what I'm doing on a bike properly yet, I figured the best way to put my newly acquired youtube researched "how to ride a bike" knowledge to the test. It was a lot of fun and didn't have any "moments" which was nice, but I did feel like I was going about 20kph slower than I was when I was below 95-100 when the wind pressure would build up.
I planned out a lovely 160km trip across some fun roads I take the racecar and road car out on... The Aucklanders will probably know sh16 and Woodcocks road.
I found out two things figured out...
1) The bmw g310r is much much slower than most cars I've driven down those roads - mainly because i don't know what I'm doing and the bike can't reach the speeds we tend to average on the car drives... I see me wanting a larger bike for fun rides in the near future, but keep the bmw for commuting on.
2) the bike is stupidly good on gas... Only used $12 nzd for the trip, the last time I took my wife's car (Peugeot RCZ) for the same drive it was $60.
Auckland is known for having 4 seasons in a single day and today was no different, a mix of rain, sun, clouds, warm, cold... So got my first taste of rain riding, and its not as bad as many people make it out to be.
Well for having the bike and my licence for roughly 2 weeks now, I'm still enjoying it.
