its been a while since i rode my bike. the clutch pads were bad so on easter i fixed up the bike and got it running again. well just yesterday my girlfriends son who is 13 came over and he had a regular peddle bike and i rode my motorized bike. together we rode a few miles into town and really enjoyed eachothers company on the ride. we bonded and after the ride tinkered a little. it had to be one of the best rides ive ever had on this thing.
