Well, I just got home from a trip to grandma's. Over the hills and through the traffic. It's just under 200 miles round trip to St. Petersburg, Fla.
The bike rode nice. It was brisk for a Florida boy, so I decided that a batwing and windshield are going on Santa's list. Need to look at relocating the controls forward a bit for comfort. I am only 5'9", 210lbs, but legs were getting tired in the stock position.
I like the factory exhaust sound. I like the look of V&H short shots. Wonder how the quiet baffles sound on the ole 800?
Still feel like a n00b when shifting. Clutch engagement is taking a little more time to learn than on the old harley.
Is there a better way to check the oil level? I need to get the bike upright and then get down there to see the sight glass. Center Stand? The Harley has the jiffy stand which means if you sneeze across the room it folds up. Hate being on the right side of the bike balancing it and then having to set it back on the side stand. Nervous Nelly!
Thinking hard bags now. Maybe a new seat with backrest. Moving the controls might help with the comfort factor.
*edit* C50, not M50.
