It would be even MORE AWESOME if it read 100 miles at the end of your first ride. Congrats and nice bike.

Waiting on weather.... cold, snowy, and a bit of a bummer. I just keep telling myself there will be plenty of riding it, and it'll never look this clean again. Drinking helps....

Seriously, does it get much better?

Good Eye! I love those dirt roads going into Burke's Garden. I've crashed two of those Arais on the track and I believe in their protection....still ride with one of my crashed ones.
