Hi again Guys & Gals. Well, we now have a few more kms on the clock with more experience on this machine as well. Cornering hard, the bike just wants to keep leaning into the corners. Off cambers can be a bit exciting, but don't back off. Powering out of a corner needs caution as it tended to slide a little on the rear tire. Seems a bit top heavy in strong winds, and also with a pillion on the rear. Overall, this is a Jaguar waiting to be unleashed. 2nd gear should not be taken for granted when hitting the 7000rpm, it will with no effort lift the front wheel off the road with ease. Be careful. Overall, riding was good but the pillion seat has been re-padded and as the wife says, it's fine now. This bike in my view would have no effort in cruising at 130 to 140 all day.
