That must have been excruciating, buy a new bike and can't ride it for 3 months due to legal issues ... 2nd exhaust? You mean you are on your 2nd after market exhaust?

and lunch at my local cafe



gotta say really pleased with the bike, nice smooth power delivery, didn't find it jerky, bit damp today so only went down to level one, good that I could power it on without having to lean on the front, not sure if this was due to traction control or reduced power in lower gears, I test rode a mt/fz 10 before and found it annoying, kept wanting to wheelie or traction control kept cutting power, Suzi delivery seems much more usable.
Comfy and the Ermax screen worked well, just a bit of wind on top of my helmet sitting normally, should get me down to southern Europe in style and looking forward to the mountains, best thing is it seems really flixable, should be fun.
Only issue was vibey bars, mirrors were hopeless at motorway speeds, going to put standard mirrors on as I need to know what's behind me, license still not that healthy.
May go for a dyno run to see what my curve is like but don't think I need more power and want to keep good mpg
Early days yet but am very happy, spent all winter on here and starting to think I bought a dog but no, it's great.

I'm on the bottom line too and no complaints. Maybe that's the real secret to no snatch.
