First Beginner Bike 696
Appreciate all the informative data concerning ducks.
I chose a 696 duc and it was not even on my list of
bikes; having researched and sat on at least about
7 bikes; my instructor suggested a 696 monster,
so as a learner/beginner I found it to be the right
seat height as my inseam is 29.5 inches; the rake of
the bike 24 degrees which gives ease of turning aka
flickability;excellant seating ergonomics; handle bar
set back. The weight was a major factor as well. Was not brand new but as second owner
it is my ride. Did upgrade to pazzo levers and a
18 ounce Shorai heavy duty battery which starts
my duck with first press of starter button. So,
I am getting into my duc with LT Synder's diy
manual. Lots of compliments when I stop the
dark monster at the intersection !!!
