Havent really added to this thread, as all I have been doing is commuting to work. Had a few glitches to fix....leaking brake line, abs sensor alignment, brakes not giving me the feel i wanted. But on the weekend, I did 1000km, 750km of which was on dirt - low medium high speed forestry trails, farm roads, gravel, red clay, bit of mud, and a small amount of single track through a gum forrest. All I can say is, HOW F*&KING GOOD IS MY BIKE ! The same stuff I was using as practice for the GS Safari last year, on my 09, was now much, much better. It ate the corrugation, the potholes, the tree roots. The lighter front end made it easy to loft the wheel over obstacles. Never bottomed once. Not once. Last year I had to limit speed, this year the bike laughed at me...I didnt challenge it at all. Big thanks to Lukas, and Paul (HDB).
