Re: A Friend Dropped By With A New Bike

I have trouble keeping the front wheel of my Versys down sometimes, but every time it gets an inch off the ground, I almost panic. The bike in the picture is just trouble for me. Probably painful trouble.

Re: A Friend Dropped By With A New Bike

First one i've seen up close. Wasn't as tall as i thought it would be...I liked it a lot. Only thing i didn't care for was that the side cases stuck out a good bit wider than the handle bars. So for lane splitting it would make me nervous at first...

Oh Yea.... It just looks like the front wheel is made to be off the ground...

Re: A Friend Dropped By With A New Bike

Persuade your friend to let you take it for a ride. I've been riding for 50 years and that is the most fun motorcycle I've ever ridden...

Re: A Friend Dropped By With A New Bike

I ride a 1290SA. Lots of electronics and gyroscopes etc to mitigate consequences of indiscretion. Wheelie control will let you pull em with impunity, but turn the nannies off and you better bring your a game when you give her the stick.

Great bike. The only one that's ever given me the feeling of my 850 Norton.
