You know I take any negative **** i have said about this bike, back.
I'm pretty pumped to go see it in the showroom.
Yeah the Tail light looks chunky and the fairings are
odd, but as a whole it looks pretty together. especially
at different angles.
You know the slipper clutch stuff aint all that much.
An instructor out at Louden said just modulate your
clutch release better and take your time with the down shifts,
I was rushing them.
It works... no wheel hop at my last track day !
YOU SEE!!! Proper throttle modulation, being SMOOTH = no slipper needed. NOW, after you keep practicing that, throw in a slipper and VOILA, extra speed! Nice eh? Never know how fast you can go until you peel away all the technological help, become a better rider and then add it back on and find out just how fast you can REALLY go. That being said, I do like the UK White. And the gauge cluster keeps making me... uhm, really excited about this bike! Especially... 15K RPM.
agreed akboy777! i think the us colors need some tweeking, but not anything that a couple hundred bucks can't fix, and all the other problems are minor. if its even half as fast as it sounds like it will be, sign me up.
btw: that UK white is the coolest color scheme yet!
