Welcome aboard. Check tire pressures often. 11,000K on my 2015 cT in 2 riding seasons. No problems. Lots of fun, although you might wonder during the first 1,000 K.

Good advice on checking the tire pressure often.

Check tire pressures often.
He's got a Garmin Zumo navigation system mounted on there. If it's the model with tire pressure monitoring, he won't HAVE to check his tire pressures (the Garmin will tell him when they're low)!

Never saw that before and it seemed pretty cool until I saw the $70 per tire sensor price tag on top of the $500 gps. Those sensors should be like 15-20, especially something that is so easy for someone steal.
