Welcome CarolinaGirl to the forums and this wonderful bike
gac, you may want to start a new thread and ask some of the more experienced/senior members here, Carolina just got the bike and probably doesn't know what problems you're having. It could be teething problems, there were some "stalling" issues that some users mentioned some months ago, could be useful to do a forum search or otherwise start your own thread on the topic.
Mine is black and silver, and the warmer weather has hit Australia, which means I need to order those chain/sprockets I keep thinking about and start hitting up the twisties again
Ride safe \o/
