New toy

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Nuff, Jan 13, 2008.

  1. I've had it for 3 days, but I'm way too busy riding to take pics. Here's one that I took with my mobile yesterday. I'm still getting used to it and the suspension needs a bit of tuning since it's to hard for the crappy sydney/NSW roads.

  2. Damn you ! :grin:

    Nice bike, how are you finding the triples power delivery?
  3. so purdy.
  4. No complaints in power, in 1st gear the steering gets very light on full throttle and i can cruise around in 6th gear at 60km/h and if I twist the throttle the bike moves! I really have to watch my speed but, frequently I catch myself riding at 80km/h in 60 zone wondering why every one is so slow.

    My only complaint is that mirrors are useless, but on the other hand it's very narrow and it's so much easier to split on it compared to my gs. Otherwise I just need to sort out the suspension and it will be perfect! At the moment I'm using setting FLUX gave me in my previous thread, they are big improvement, but they still need tweaking.
  5. im sorry but i hate, despise and envy you... :LOL: :wink:
    given the time of day that shot was taken it sure looks like youve been riding it from dusk to dawn! where abouts is that shot taken btw???
  6. Just out of curiousity, do these things lift the front wheel up under power? :)
  7. Thanks guys! I took that shot at RNP on the way back from Kiama through Waterfall, very bumpy road and my bike's stiff suspension was struggling for traction there, except through the few corners with new tarmac.

    And yes, I was riding it from dusk to dawn :LOL:

    I had it for 3 days and I've to book it in for first service this week.
  8. Hmm, no idea, I know my steering got very light when I twisted the throttle and went from about 40 to 100 in 1st gear. But I don't think that it lifted the front. But I'm sure that if you change the sprockets, lifting front will be easy.
  9. damn straight it would.
  10. Congrats on the new bike mate :cool:

    I hear ,that in Neutral you need a little clutch and she'll come right up. :LOL:

    They look like there going fast when there parked. :cool:
  11. Sleddog is right, all you need to do is a bit of clutch, I did that on my first test ride by dropping down a gear and trying to revmatch, but over did it, and the front came up with ease.
  12. Very sexy, indeed! Love the look of those babies :wink:
  13. Congratulations mate, very nice looking machine.

    Now someone in Sydney has one, when can we go for a Putty run and test it's legs against the 'Bird in 6th roll ons?
  14. Not that debate again! :LOL:

    I'm sure we can give it a whirl, just a warning, I'm still a newbie and I've a lot to learn, but straight line acceleration is easy. I'm still faster in the twisty bits on my old GS500.

    Just give me a week or two so the engine is properly broke in and we can do some runs.
  15. Very nice selection.
    BA$TARD!!! :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  16. Congrats on the new toy. :cool:

    How have you gotten around the heat problem you raised in your test ride review? Or do you just learn to live with it?
  17. I thought you weren't allowed to put pornographic pics in the forums? :grin:

    Very nice, very nice indeed.
  18. nice pic dude, congrats on the bike :grin:
