Used to go to the Royal Oak when I was a kid great place duck don't grouse above inside door just raised the screen up to the top not sure if it's helps seems to buffet the top of my head may put it back down noticed also this bike gets up to high speeds far to quickly have to keep my eye on that until I get used to it

Do a Bike Safe course it should be free two days of tuition with either police bikers or ROSPA gold riders he best nothing I have ever spent they sorted me out in about an hour. The biggest thing I learnt was keeping the bike in third or fourth gear in the twisties that way you are always in the power band and the engine does the braking for you. Or the other alternative is buy a CT DCT put it in sport mode and it does it for you automatically. Sorry please excuse the pun.
