    Just gave it a full detail (ct18 truck wash removes all sins), which is why I took a photo. If you look closer you can see where the gravel has sandblasted the centre stand, as well as the scrapes on the lower crash bars where it got tired and had a little lie down.

    Not so new anymore with almost 60,000km on the clock.

    Still amazes me how versatile this bike is.

    Took our first trip yesterday. My first ever boxer, a 2014 LC with complete service history and extended warranty until 2018... Excellent balance, pulls like an animal, even in Rain mode. Brakes - only a concrete wall can stop you quicker.

    On the other hand, when it comes to being "refined", it is nowhere even near my old F650GS twin. Gear shifting sounds like a hammer on an anvil, the engine shakes and rattles, the Rev needle dances around, you simply can't keep a steady cruise with a fixed throttle. This may be yet another "they all do that" situation anyway. I think I'll try the NGK spark plugs discussed here, although I don't believe they can do that much difference. Any other suggestions?

    No they dont all do that (the steady cruise), but they sure do make a racket.

    Coming from a Tiger 800xc, it was a big shock to me the difference in smoothness between both (to the point that I thought there was something wrong with the gearbox). I can agree to everything you are saying.

    One thing that might help with up shifting, put your foot under the lever and apply a bit of pressure before pulling the clutch. Once you pull the clutch, you'll notice that it will feel a lot better. I still have to refine the down shifting. Sometimes I can get it perfectly and sometimes it does feel like a hammer.

    I am going to do some research on the plugs......
