For me, it has been 2 months and 7000 kms. When I do test rides, all I care about is whether I like the general feeling I get when I ride the bike. This usually involves the following questions:
-Is the seat confortable for me?
-Is the sitting position comfortable for me?
-Do I like the bikes engine?
-Do I like to look at it?
-Does its breaking system work good enough for my liking?
-Does it handle the curves easily?
-Is it easy to handle at VERY low speeds like 5kmph?
Suspensions, what comes fitted on the bike and what I need to fit on it later are usually not my primary concerns. I think the above questions are very basic points that make or break the deal for me on any bike. If the bike ticks most of these boxes (I wouldn't give CT 5 stars on all of those, imho, but it rates highly in pretty much all of these), than I conclude this is a bike I would love to ride.
These are basic stuff that I can't change on my bike, except for the seat. And I would rather keep the original seat instead of looking for alternatives, if possible. Everything else; tyres, suspension, screen, extras and such, are secondary for me when I do the test ride.
If it ticks most of the boxes, I start smiling. When I do so, I usually end up buying that bike.
