Today was a beautiful sunny day with temps on the cool side at 52 degrees. I had started the R50 a few times over the winter, but this was a good day for an actual ride with clear dry roads. The bike started 2nd kick as usual and settled in to a lumpy idle for a few minutes until it got warm. Once we were off, it was reuniting with an old friend. We cruised along for about a 30 mile loop and the bike seemed to run better the longer we went. I topped up with gas about halfway and enjoyed the ride home. I continue to wonder why there is no modern version of the Denfeld seat and silent block. It would be perfect for a hardtail…
