3 hours and 40 miles! That's less than 14 miles per hour!

Welcome. Don't get out on mine as much as I should, use my 2 smaller bikes in Bangkok. Ceeby is a characterful bike. Enjoy.

Yep, was doing neighborhoods and slow maneuvers. Got pretty comfy with it since then and I've been riding it a bunch. Did a little more than a 3 hr ride on saturday and put on 150 miles

In my opinion it takes 5000 miles of seat time and then will truly feel comfortable, safe and "at home" with a particular motorcycle.

I am just beginning to experience that feeling now at 2500 miles. if you read some of my earliest posts on this forum I commented that i felt as timid as a street cat during my first month of ownership and would toot the horn at every car that had its nose sticking out to pull onto the street. I felt like every car was about to crash into me or did not see me.

Fast forward 6 months later and the "close calls" are very few and far between. I really like and recommend the book "Proficient Motorcycling", that is a fantastic read.

you can be confident and enjoy riding even in traffic, with rational understanding of potential dangers from unpredictable drivers.. just like leaving adequate stopping distance in the wet, allow for
the chance that they may be less than perfect in competence and general attention...
ie, have your special cake and eat it too..
