Well what are your questions? That's what the forum is for, to ask questions, you don't have to ask if you can ask questions :)

So are you looking to talk with someone who owns the same model? I think the only things you need to check so you don't break a bike by riding it are:

chain slack

tire pressure

oil level

valve lash

steering play/feel (headset bearings)

throttle slide tube/throttle cable/linkage (no binding, smooth operation)

oh yeah, check the brakes too :thumbsup:

but most importantly, don't go out on a bike new to you and start bashing around like crazy. Just putt at first and increase your speed/aggression as you get more familiar with the bike (and as you go through it sorting it out and making sure everything is in good condition)
