Well, it only took 3 visits to the dealer located over an hour away, but today I finally picked up my new bike from Lawrenceville Honda. Naturally there were some last-minute complications that made it take over 3 hours to pick it up, but we finally left the dealership around 3 pm.
Since I don’t have a lot of experience, I didn’t want to start out with an hour drive on Interstates 85, 285, and 75 to get home. Instead we took GA-120 all the way to Marietta and then US 41 home. With all of the stoplights and extra distance, we finished the trip in just over 2 hours. That gave me plenty of practice starting, stopping, changing lanes, etc–everything I needed to practice before taking it to work.
Thanks to the ride home I’ve already got almost 75 miles on my brand new Honda Shadow Aero 750, and I can say without a doubt that I love it! Now let’s get riding!
