Put up a Image of Your F-Twin

I hope BMW does very nicely with these bikes. They appear to be very good.

All I can say after proudly owning it for 3 weeks, in the present day, and placing 550 miles on it (that is 150 previous break-in) is:

1. It’s constructed like a BMW. All class, nice engineering, every thing as a substitute, and all of it works nicely to date!
2. Goes like stink to an 8.5K rpm red-line, till my eyeballs harm (and I put on a pleasant, mild Shoei X-11 full face helmet), stops linear with upright dive-avoid ABS as quick or sooner than it goes. (In case you overdo the entrance brake, the suspension tightens; do it in the appropriate vary and it does not).
3. Handles with leg pushes (arms practically superfluous) with low COG, mild on its ft, facet to facet flick-ability, however secure within the wind, and going straight as an arrow referenced to a white freeway line at 85+ via mountain passes.
4. Will get a stable 60+ mpg, I’ve stuffed its 5 gallon tank 2X since I personal it (my third tankful was Friday evening, so it nonetheless full). My automobile will pull 22 mpg driving the identical stretches).

I find it irresistible. Have a rear seat cowl, LED substitute taillight, and RKA tank bag and sport saddle baggage on order for it, too. Ought to have all these issues, and pics to go along with by the top of the month (the RKA order ships 4/27/07).

I would like saddlebags that go on AND COME OFF with no mounting {hardware} left. Week-wise, the tank bag alone will do.

Anybody wish to purchase a pleasant Chase Harper set of tank bag and saddlebags (the tank bag is magnetic) at a low value?:laugh

By the way in which your ST is nice-I virtually purchased one earlier than my final bike, a Suzuki Bandit ABS version. All three have the identical driving place. I assume we prefer it, however I’ve by no means had leg cramps. I take advantage of my legs just like the Pridmore’s taught me to do 11 years in the past in CLASS. It’s a lot simpler to do on this low COG bike. You possibly can’t imagine what a low COG 400 lbs bike can do exactly with leg throws.
