Thanks Ian. I now have 11,000 km. I love the bike, it has great passing power. My worst complaint is the seat because I am tall. I already dropped the pegs one inch and had the seat worked on twice but I need more work. I just came back from a 5000 km + trip to the Aim Expo motorcycle show in Columbus Ohio. I replaced the rear tire @ 8100 km with a Pirelli in Pennsylvania. The season is getting short here in Canada but we have been having an exceptional hot summer, so our riding season may be extended.
