I noticed the brakes felt a bit mushy so I bled both the front and the back. Lotsa bubbles, both reservoirs full enough after so I didn't need to add any. Big difference on the rear brake. Tried some emergency stops, stopping faster and shorter now. Bleed your brakes it takes like a minute.

Three days of ~ 250 miles
One day of 199 miles
One day of 366 miles
Still haven't really had time to research or order farkles! Here's from the 366-mile day:
