Hi all, I thought I'd introduce myself and my new bike. I based over in Perth and recently received my new ride from Alan at FX Powersports. I thought this thread might prove useful to anyone who is looking at purchasing a bimota so they know what they are getting themselves into. Right I thought I might keep this thread updating by letting people know how I'm getting on with the bike. So here goes. First off the dealership experience, having bought the bike from FX Powersports over east, I can only praise the customer service I got from them. Now I know this is what you would expect when spending an obscene amount of money on a bike, but they did everything I asked of them, and I asked a lot for my money. They even managed to arrange for my parents to get show around the factory when they visited Rimini and they had a great time (Dad can't believe I ride the thing he wanted to put it in this living room back in the UK). Now FX don't have a shop over here so they use the Scooter Shop in North Perth for the hand over, they were great as well with the hand over Shane and Frank are both real enthusiasts and they kept me up to date with delivery dates. OK, onto the bike, mmmm firstly unless you sit on this thing you won't believe how light it feels, just moving it about it feels lighter than my old race ZX6R and that had no road gear on it at all. I want to get it on the scales to see what the real weight of it is so if anyone know where can do this let me know. The run in period is 1,000km not to go above 6k. That lasted about 120km before gave it a few runs up to 8k to make sure it worked but so far I've been very good and kept it around the 6k mark, it cruises easily around 110 +/- kph in 6th so will kept to the handbook schedule as much as I can. I currently trying to arrange to get the bike professionally detailed, (first day of riding was in the rain, and a little rain was never going to keep me off it) and get some protection of some kind on the fairings to protect from stone chips. I've got a guy coming over from east who details some high end cars over here and have asked him to give the bike the once over. Bike currently has around 450km on the clock and feels like it's starting to loosen up nicely, I can't wait until it's properly run in. If anyone see me out on it feel free to wave and stop me for a chat. Will upload some pictures soon as I can.
