In keeping with the Classic Velocity Law of Concentric Circles, it was off to get in a few miles and find out about running condition. On an unusually warm November day, the machine made about a 30 mile circle. It meandered along a river road and visited an abandoned bridge. The idea was to test engine and suspension, but also to test stopping and starting multiple times. The /7 passed with flying colors. Acceleration was surprisingly good, although that may have something to do with the aviation gas! Stopping was good, and the bike started easily both cold and hot.
