I absolutely love my bike! I Ride mine every day that isn't raining to work 25minutes and home 45min-1hr (I always take a longer route home) All B roads and once in a while HWY, hardly any traffic, decent enough bends as I go along the outskirts of town. It handles amazing, runs fantastic and looks and sounds bad ass. I agree that there are a few silly issues but they are easily sorted, just see my manuals (head torque, ring gear, Trans vent) and if you are not mechanically inclined or have a dealer 3,000 miles away, it may not be the bike for you. But WHAT A MACHINE!!!! Hello Richard , Thanks for all your input and help. Its amazing to think about how much better this bike will be with more refinement and development. I love my bike too.
