Hello Marc and welcome to the forum. I'd like to see your bike so please post a picture.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

Hi Marc...

Welcome to the forum AND especially to riding.

I've got two boys - both older than you - I know how they wanted to do everything FAST at your age (driving cars, riding motorcycles, you name it). I know you're not on a big bike, but still, as a new rider, please take it slow and easy...get used to your ride, treat it with respect, and you'll have years of enjoyment with this activity. Have a great time with your new bike!

Mike

Looks like a perfect beginner bike/commuting bike. Probably gets great gas mileage, too.

Yea that's why I bought it and it does have great gas mileage. It has a 9L tank including 1.5L reserve. With 1 liter I can get 40km (25 miles) so if I fill her up I can go 360km (224 miles).

Welcome to the forums. That's a pretty nice looking bike you've got there. If you're anything like me or my friends, within a couple weeks, the bike will become your daily driver.
