Im a longtime site lurker, first time street bike owner of 3 months and 700 current miles! I followed this bike since right after it came out. I finally grew enough courage, sold my spare car and bought the bike. I amazingly don't miss the car I sold and don't regret the purchase at all. I Live in Louisiana. So far, I love the bike more and more. I had my first "motherf**er" moment yesterday, I stopped at a redlight, saw a 1/4" ratchet just lying on the ground, leaned over to pick it up and the bike tipped the other way, couldn't react fast enough to stop it. It hit the ground and scuffed up the oil pump cover and the larger engine cover on the right side, $150 worth of parts. Im so disappointed in myself, I had just given it its first oil change, removed all the reflectors and installed the throttle tamer I read about on here. And I went and dropped it. Anyway, glad to be a part of the community, most everyone here seems very informative and down to earth.
