Buying a 'bent

Assuming things go as planned, I will be the happy owner of this bike:

in about a week.

Hopefully I will be able to drive down to Jersey (6 hour drive) to pick it up. I'm buying it used. It's a 2002 Rans Rocket (as if you couldn't tell) I'm waiting on the final "ok" from the seller.

I'm a little nervous because I haven't ever ridden one. I've never ridden any recumbent for that matter, but I've been wanting one for months and reading about them. I know there's a bit of a steep learning curve for SWB bikes like this one, but I'm determined and I didn't want to buy a newbie bike only to quickly grow tired of it. I also needed a bike short enough to be able to carry up and down two flights of stairs. I think I will be quite happy with this one.
