Default New member intro

Hi, I'm Chris from NY. Just picked up my first bike, a 2016 Magnum. Just started riding and love how the bike handles. Been into sled, quads and dirt bikes, now time to ride the road. Been on the forum for a few months just trollling, thought it would be time to make my appearance known.

Your first bike and you go with a Magnum? Hard to move up from there. I like it!

Default Dirt!

Been a dirt rider. That always helps! These bikes are big, but they can and do handle good. I know in the dirt I tend to use the rear brake a little more. Remember for the street try and use that front brake, just some friendly advise. Some people who have not ridden in the street much like to use the rear brake to much and then they say they had to lay it down. People can always go to an empty parking lot and practice braking and turning with their nice new bike. Just wishing you a good time with your new bike and keep the shiny side up. Enjoy the ride!

Thanks for the advise. I took the MSF course, learned a lot there, and after I took the magnum out to the school parking lot. It's a big difference handling that over a 250 at low speeds. It's an awesome bike, I love it!!!!
