I knew that would bring you out of your lair! There are three dangerous triggers on these forums, What type of oil, What type of tire (tyre), and What's the fastest color! Worse yet, I can't argue any more with you about the latter!

Hey exavid :waving: And the answers are, :action:

(1) What type of Oil?. = Non Synth. :clapper:

(2) What type of tyre?. = Bridgestone. :clapper:

(3) What is the fastest colour?. = Pearl Red. :clapper:

I dont want tosee any more questions on the above topics. :whip: Refer all questions to this reply. :stumped:

REDWING, I'm disappointed to see you so wishy-washy! Usually you have a definite opinion!

HI All,

Just an update, picked up the bike on the 18th. Took it out yesterday for an 1 1/2 spin in a nice set of twisties, quite a nice riding bike, my initial concerns about the brakes seem unfounded, I practiced panic stops several times and stopped quite well (non-abs bike). The linked braking has an altogether different feel to me, or perhaps my imagination.

Wife's christened the bike "tweetie bird".

What suspension setting do you guys run at, my salesman runs his at 11, I'm thinking I want it a bit stiffer and dialed way up in twisties, thoughts?

Planning my first run from Columbus Georgia through central Alabama, up through Mississippi to Clarksdale (birthplace of delta blues music of which I'm a huge fan) then up through Memphis to visit relatives.

Chris

PS>planning on xmradio and maybe a cb. I can see it's quite easy to spend tons of $$$ on this thing just for the technical bits!
