did you lower the stock height of your bike?
thanks Nate:) I hope you find some good guys too! I'm a huge fan of the ABC. I did NOT lower the bike. I kind of like how tall it is:)

well, no. she rode it around a parking lot a few times before I dug into some maintenance, then I had my crash on the beemer and she lost interest in motorcycles and freeways. she also never really could get the hang of clutches and shifting, so the scooter is fantastic for her. surface street speeds and fully automatic. (that CL350 is currently for sale...)
