So I’ve got the Monster running, and rode her up to San Bruno. It was a good ride, I took a detour and went up and down Sharp Park Rd. which was fun. She’s running good.
It’s been so long since I rode the Monster I’d forgotten how little it is, especially with the stock seat on.
She maintained a steady temperature, and the speedo was reading the correct speed (tested following the wife in the car).
The only bugs are still struggling to get it started and I’m nervous about letting her idle to low, seems like it wants to die. Over all though she’s doing great, and it’s hard to let her go.
