So far so good. It does take getting use to the throttle response and the traffic and is a much more calculated ride than on the GS. Slow down so I can take off moving from the red light etc. Even passed a few cars and had a guy pull over going on a downhill twisty road tonight

I did not win against these 2 however but it was close for the first 7ft!

mini trip to the store for milk etc was fun and easy.

Then tonight it went for it's first joy only ride, no reason for the ride other then some fun and it was getting dark!
Have weebeastie will travel!

Kinda spooky up in the hills with no real engine noise to speak of and moving at a much slower pace really makes you take in everything.

was not that brave

But cruising the main drag is fun with all the lights

The non-moving headlight is going to take some getting use too at night, just got to learn to lean it more I guess

oh and my top speed so far was tonight, not even full throttle, but downhill on a smooth as glass road with no wind.
