Whilst doing some fiddling with the new bars I discovered that the throttle was not returning with its usual authoritative click. With the bars pushed all the way left it would only close about 9/10. Hmmm... I retired for the night with plans of disassembly but with the morning came clarity. I had adjusted the slack out of the "pull" side to eliminate the herky-jerky at low speeds but I never touched the "return" cable.

Long story short, it was a bit too tight. I put in some slack and the throttle "returned" to normal.

I seemed to remember reading somewhere that this should be done but I couldn't tell you where, so now you read it here.

The bike is now gassed up and ready for tomorrow's trip to The Island of Lost Souls, Manhattan NYC, where I will lunch with the patriarch and fix his coffee maker.

Fixing coffee maker is a worthwhile pursuit - I approve (as I sip my morning coffee).

Carrying the 15 lbs. of chain helps keep the bike stable in crosswinds.

I dunno, deploying "lunch" as a verb...
...perhaps grammatically correct, but I think it makes one suspect..
..(which may not be).
