i'm a new proud owner and i say myself:the bike is simply wonderful.

I did not and I did not yet understand all (the first time at the test ride you make only a distant idea but struck me the ease of driving and the engine full at any speed, I tried it a second time thanks to the dealer's one but I just tested my knowing I adapt and feel it, now that I have my best I could let go. Yesterday I let go of it and I've done a hundred kilometers without realizing it (only a mild soreness in his left hand, because a clutch to know and do my) on roads mixed

First impressions at hot: it is soft, linear, predictable, also comfortable. The turns are made with great neutrality, riding there labors to move, the platforms are broad perhaps only the right but certainly well positioned. The engine has not warmed at all and started the fan only half time. I never pulled over the 5500 cause running but the rewards are not missed. Great support in light fold the tires still have the wax and also on uneven vibrations limited. The rear 190/50 gave great confidence. And tha return annoying the rear brake i feel the first time that I did not find now .

So far only one limit: I do a hard Executioner to find neutral. It does not seem to get, is going by before going down from the second. Just off the bike goes right, but know we can not turn it off at traffic lights! I will try to understand it better the next day. I am kicking myself that I left for work and before Sunday afternoon, not the resume.
Ps. Also my wife like it (but she not yet climb it, then we will see what she will say ...).

In short, for now 10 full.
I'm happy

Buongiorno!

Great first post! I only had a short test ride before ordering mine and I didn't find any problem with finding neutral, I hope you find it easier as you get used to your new bike :)

I've found the solution to the neutral: the clutch have to be pulled entirely to the end of the run. In my experience with other bikes the neutral was finded easier with only a bit of clutch. I hope it could be useful.

P.S. Today another great day with my queen.
