A couple of observations so far:

-by sport-bike standards, this is a very comfortable bike for general use... my intent was largely commuter as an alternative to by actual vehicle. I am pleased with the ergonomics for somebody that is 6'2... the Daytona, Kawasaki and Yamaha alternatives were not as comfortable for me... might be great, might be better, but I couldn't own a bike I wasn't comfortable on....
-I am getting EXTREMELY tired of people tailgating me... I rarely speed, ever... it's just not worth it at my age... I cruise at the speedlimit in my Range Rover and I do the speed limit on my bike... My speeds are constant and if you are so fucking angry about the fact that I ride at the speedlimit... OVERTAKE ME!!!
-I desperately need new tires... Dunlop Qualifiers... will be seeking advice from everybody here....
-Almost 2,000 KMs on this bike and loving every second... haven't touched my Range in week... It feels VERY wasteful driving a big, heavy car around when I am transporting little more than myself, my wallet and my cell phone most of the time... lol...
-deep down, I am still a car guy though.... not a bike-convert yet....
Long Live the King : RIP John (Gwilo)
