    Nice looking bike though, enjoy it.

    And the Saturday morning meets are priceless.

    If it makes you feel any better. I went for a ride the other day. All of a sudden riding along Epping Rd the bike just loses powere, no response from throttle, engine completely died. I was sh!tting myself, pulled over to the left lane, cars coming behind me at 80ks. Tried to start, no luck, turned bike off then on, no luck.

    Look down and somehow, no idea how this happened, my killswitch was flicked over.
    Flicked it back, started bike, big backfire and off I was feeling very stupid.

    I still have no idea how I managed to bump the kill switch though, my hands were towards the outside of the bars. . . ?

    Don't worry about the buffeting there is a level of fitness you'll get to from riding the bike every day and in a short time you'll not notice the buffeting....or the sore clutch hand. Great bike to start on...have fun and stay safe
