Haha! Thanks guys!

Took delivery of it this evening then had to teach an hour long lesson before having a proper look at it! Torture!

Just been out for a quick sptin - I don't trust myself to do more than a couple of miles tonight - I'm knackered!

I absolutely LOVE it! Not taken it past 5000rpm yet as I'm trying to be good with the run-in (angel), but this was definitely the right bike for me right now! I'm hooked!

I'll try and work out how to do pics...

*edit - ugh. Can't work out how to embed pictures. I'll have to attach! Sorry....

Looks fabulous Mr Fiend, & good to know you're pleased with your choice. Fwiw I have a little old CBR400 that I still have as a winter hack, and imho that sort of size is more than adequate for road riding. I actually prefer the smaller capacity machine, as it feels less "under exploited" when riding at a socially acceptable pace.

There is an eminent engineering guru on here, who I believe I recall has often proposed that engines may actually be better if treated less carefully.
Getting used to your bike before blatting it about, has got to be an excellent side effect though.

Lovely weather for a few days now...: Enjoy. :)

Nice! Happy new bike day.

It's lovely here this evening, hope it's as nice where you are and you get a chance to give it a proper spin.
