Done deal! I got the bike the other day, and it is running a little rough. My BIL seems to think that everything is fine, and I didn't want to look a gift horse in the mouth right in front of him, but I could tell it needed a tune-up from the backfiring it had, plus the fact that he has to ride it with the choke full open all the time. One of the front forks was leaking fluid, and the brakes squeak pretty bad, but I got it to the shop yesterday and they will let me know what's what soon enough. I just hope it isn't too much.....!

One question- do any of you guys ever feel your hands going numb after riding for a while? The shop I took it to was about 40 minutes away, and my hands kept losing feeling. It didn't feel good, and I had to keep letting off the throttle in order to shake it out and get feeling back. Is this common? Is there a fix for it? Thanks!
