Really Really Cold Start


First off I haven’t riden my bike in over a month because of travel, work, and other things getting in the way. Even days where I just wanted to start Robo up I just didn’t get a chance. So today after work I decided that I would be getting my leg over the bike for sure.

Important Tips for a cold start:

  • Warm up bike for 5-10 mins since it hasn’t been switched for over a month.
  • Ride for at least 20 minutes to warm up the tires.
  • Ride for at least 30 to 45 minutes to warm up your transmission and clutch, my clutch as bit stiff so it was very clunky while shifting but after riding for a little while it went back to normal.
  • Avoid any and all drastic moves on the bike for the first 30 minutes of riding to make sure the bike is all warmed up and handles correctly without being stiff.

After breaking in the bike I felt like I regained my freedom and little devil inside of me had a window into reality. With the music and fantastic weather I felt like something took over me and I wanted to ride hard and enjoy myself, and I did enjoy myself.


Then the incident at starbucks took place which I am happy I was able to help, and then I continued to finish my chocolate cake and mocafrappacino before riding. The staff at the Marina Cresent Starbucks were nothing short of helpful with this young man. Two thumbs up to starbucks for having a good staff! And the chocolate cake to my luck was fantastic!

Then I continued my riding down the Gulf Road! It was great the waether was perfect and I was wearing my Polar Buff so I felt really good and the bike was handling itself just like it used to. I felt a freedom I haven’t felt in a long time and the weather was perfect! There were other bikes out on the road, but I was too preoccupied with my riding and music. I hope to be riding more again!
