New Bike!

I picked up a new 2006 525 XC this evening. Way excited! Any I should know or check on this bike before I go riding later this week?

Lock tight the kick start and shifter bolts, dont over tighten the chain, enjoy.

Double check everything, my front axle was loose (the setup guys fault).

I heard this same thing and said to myself "BS"

Went riding for the first time, stopped after about thirty minutes, happened to look at the kickstart bolt and it had backed out about a 1/4".

Damn, guess it was true!
