Looks great, really like the black upper crash bars. Buy a uni filter now, and take a look at the Rottweiler intake system they are about to release. Your airbox is a ticking time bomb if you don't. After that enjoy!

Yup, already have the Uni filter system. It was on my list of add-ons which I gave to the dealer. I learned about the airbox problem on this forum. Thanks, all!

It's 70 degrees here today, and the heat under the seat actually felt good... I can imagine that it wouldn't be so great in 80+ heat. Here in northern MA, I'm going to just wait and see how the heat does throughout the year. My guess is that it will be VERY welcome come winter time...

Congrats on the New bike, it's a beuty.

You seem to flatfoot that beast with no issues, can i ask your inseam?

Im trying to decide between the normal adv or the R version.

Problem is that im short with a 31 inseam, and i dont want to get my self in to trouble when commuting.

Thanks and have fun With Orange :)

I have a 32 inseam and with the R I have problems both off and on road. That said, if I had to do it again I'd stick with the R. I use and plan to keep using it mostly off road. As long as I don't stop it's the best bike!

The S is quite possibly a better bike, the electric adjustable suspension is pretty awesome, and it can still do off-road quite well!

It was a mutual decision w/ the mechanic at the dealer. With them mounted to the LOWER crash bars, they don't have to come off when the upper body panels and tank come off during service.

It does put them in a vulnerable position to take a hit if she tips over.
