I've had a '10 Standard, Non-ABS for a couple of months now and am really enjoying the bike. I'm 6'-2" and find that the seating/ergonomics for me are just about perfect. I do notice that the passenger seat limits the seating position somewhat and will probably try to correct that this winter. I'm also running a shorty Cal Sci screen which eliminates the helmet turbulence of the stocker. I'll probably spring for the carbon PP sport screen as an up grade.



Took a two day, 900 mile loop through the Big Horns and SE Montana, averaged about 38mpg with some pretty high speed running. Awesome power from the 1198 motor.

cheers,
