At the HOT Rally I bought this Bacchetta Ti Aero. About 22 lbs with 650c lightweight wheels.
A couple of days ago I was able to ride the bike a little around the neighborhood and dial-in the fitting.
Today I went on my first long ride with it - 51 miles. Faster than my other non-faired bikes (Musashi, Baron, P-38). Slower than the F-40.
Once fitted, it is an extremely easy bike to ride. Coasts like crazy and solid as a rock.
This will be my ride-with-others bike. The F-40 is a leave-others-in-the-dust bike.
Nice easy ride to Salado and back (mostly) with Brian Buckmaster.
Since I’m so out of shape I mostly coasted whenever I could.
