Thx for the welcome!

While it's certainly not ideal, especially for a new rider, I'm finding manhattan to be not nearly as scary as I thought. For the most part people are pretty respectful of the bikes. Cabs can be jerks but they are much more predictable than I thought they would be. The towncar/limos tho - ugh - those are the ones to look out for. It's really fun how it makes the city seem so much smaller - easier to get around quickly. The bike feels great. I did buy the lower seat (not pictured) which gives me an extra inch or so. I'm 5'7 30" inseam. glad to have the ABS - but have yet to engage it yet. I'm told it was tested on The dealers test ride. I'll post more pics when my termis show up!
