I was scuttled by an OAP some11 years ago and it left me physically disabled. Since then I have tried Bandits, FJR's, Tuono's and regrettably a Buell. Then this monster came along.
It is a monster in size, weight and of corse the engine but I have found it to be very, very easy going. By that I mean, at low speed it is easy to turn and maintains a good balance on u turns, if the road is wide enough.
Seat - getting on for me has been a breeze, the large comfy seat is a dream on the titanium plates holding the pelvis. The leg position is fantastic and I don't need to stop until the tank needs filling. I don't find the reach to the bars uncomfortable at all.
Ride - absolutely brilliant. Fast, effortless and a dream, yes it has a problem with scratching on the bends. I love it when my sports bike rider brother in law eventually catches up and then I crank it again.
Instruments - I do like the speedo in front and I do feel that I am looking down to check, other than that it is great. I do like the gear indicator, it's about time this was standard on all bikes.
Overall - I love it and if you or any friend etc has had serious pelvis injury/surgery I would highly recommend it. Fantastic and the best bike for me.
