Isn't that like getting an Uzi as your first weapon because it is "nice and small" ?!!


dunno, i hear they go alright and handle very well. got a few parts i need today, and a battery to get it going, maybe start a thread and document its adventures.

I this bike!!
did some rider training with Stay Upright at Wakefield. Did 140km all up on the track. Destroyed the cush drive towards the end. Few compression lock ups at the start, getting better at stopping the bike now.
A few days before i flushed brake fluids, new HH front pads and brake cleaned. New oil.
So glad i went with the 900.
Havent touched the suspension yet, any suggestions, anyone got some stuff for sale?
