Had a pretty good ride on one today.

'I did about 150km this afternoon and think it's going to be very good bike for local conditions.
Found it as as comfortable as a comfortable thing on national cushion day and thought it has great handling, braking and good power, without being 'sick'. Sounds very nice too.
Lovely front end, solid on the dirt and the engine spools up really nicely. I liked the instruments and dash and the whole cockpit set up worked pretty well.
Ground clearance isn't huge - it's not poor - but not sportsbike either. Still very tidy on the tarmac nonetheless.
It's quite a lump to manhandle with feet down on the slippery stuff - but then there's not many 1200s that aren't. '
