Default Got her home

I picked op my new cct last night. After almost 250 miles from dealer back home i found out that this is a great bike. If it wasn't for having to break it in we could have really rolled on the way home. Picked it up in texas where they have two lane highways with 75 mph speed limits. By time we got home it was almost 11 pm my wife was exhausted from the ride in her car and i was ready to go a few more hours. this bike is awsome.

mine only had the short windshield that comes on the cc, someone at the dealer must have swapped out the original windshield before i bought it. Tried to get them to swap it back to the original but they said that they didn't have one in stock, but it wasn't a bad ride with short windshield. Also i am not computer savy enough to put pictures on the computer.

Very happy for you and a little jealous. Mine has been sitting in the garage now for 10 days and not getting touched except to remove stickers. Of course I have the list of Mods I want to do. Just need to build bank account bank up after big Purchase.

10 day forecast high 33 Roads Salt covered.. Maybe in April I can ride.

Did you find any peculiarities, compared to what bikes you were used to? That is, did any of the suggestions from that earlier thread -- check air in the tires, etc. -- help you out, or were you just able to hop on and enjoy yourself, no issues, no tricks?

Regarding pics, if you can get a photo from your camera onto the PC somewhere, you just have to know where that photo is located, i.e., in what folder or directory or whatever you'd like to call it. It's quicker to do this than to describe it:

- When you're posting here, click on that icon that looks like a paperclip (just to the right of the smiley face), when you're on a Reply to Thread or Post New Thread page.

- That will open a new window or tab, called Manage Attachments. Click on the Browse button there.

- This will open a standard Windows (or are you using a Mac?) file navigation box., and navigate your way to the folder/directory where the pic is, click on the particular pic, and then click the Open button.

- That will bring you back to the Manage Attachments tab/window. Click the Upload button.

- Wait a bit for the file to upload -- you'll see the file name under Current Attachments in the Manage Attachments tab/window when the upload is finished -- and then click the Close this window button at the very bottom center of the Manage Attachments page.

- You'll now be back on the regular Reply to Thread or Post New Thread page, where you can hit Submit Reply or Submit New Thread.

That's it. You could have resized your original photo to get it to be the max viewing size allowed here, but that's not really necessary (and I'm still not clear on that myself, after posting dozens of pics). Just try the method above, and see what happens. And if you're unable to navigate to the original photo on your PC with a typical Windows locate-a-file dialog box, you should probably have someone show you how to do this, and then you'll be all set.

Cheers,
