sean, the bike was flawless. light @ 250#, nimble and with decent power. don't need more. throttle is very crisp.
still stock suspension and was soft, but it didn't bother me.
14/52 gearing is great. stock was 14/45. bike and rider are happy on 3rd gear. 60 mph on pavement is ok,
i will be installing a 5.3 gal tank and an aftermarket exhaust next.
after the suspension job (3/4 lower), a steering damper will be nice.
