First service out the way, 1000 miles under the wheels and centre stand, fender extender, Beowulf rad guard and Givi top box all added.. Just got back from a proper ride out in rural Herts and the bike is still totally sublime! It has a strangely stealthy power delivery - at times it doesn't feel like i'm going that quick but then I look at the speedo
I can only think that the 275kg weight, the shaft drive and the linear power delivery all conspire to make this bike feel not quite as fast as it is - it has such a stable and secure feel to it as you red line it through the gears, its very deceptive. Anyone else find this to be the case?
The handling is great as well, it just soaks up the road surface and insulates you from poor road conditions.. I love it, what a cool bike!! I really can't understand why there aren't loads more on the roads - I reckon it's far superior to a GS and cheaper to run and more reliable. A top bike in every sense
