Well I got my bike the step thru version about 3 weeks ago but the weather here in Or. has not been cooperative. I took my sweet time assembling the bike over the past week and adding accessories I had stacked up.
Today the sun has come out and so I just returned from my first short ride, bike runs great, shifts smooth, brakes work great, an overall pleasurable ride!!
One thing I will need to change is the seat, good seat but my rear is not tough enough for it, so a suspension post and new seat are in order for sure.
I am no bike mechanic but it was straight forward to assemble and the instructions on line are very detailed and great. I got the bike as soon as the 300 dollar discount came out and for 1699.00 IMO it's a great buy. Very happy with it so far. In PAS 1 with 7th gear easy pedal and about 12 mph with little effort and the throttle is great too for getting going.
Hope to ride many miles in the future. BTW I turn 80 in July, and I am very glad I decided on the step thru because with the RockBros bag on the rear rack it would be tough to swing over, I am only 5'9" and it is a perfect size for me.        Jerry


Jerry--so glad you like your new ride. Sounds like you know what the bike should be in fitting the seat for you. Plus you grabbed the discount--a real plus when you've found a bike you really enjoy. I have similar thoughts about my new and first time RAD.

Not sure were you are but I'm in Oregon as well and it was 70 degrees last Tuesday and Wednesday.  ;D
