Pretty uncomfortable I imagine as it only has 1 set of pegs and a solo seat!

Do you have a skateboard? I could give you a tow :D

Steve.
Just in case you're feeling a little underpowered :shock: whilst at the local dyno shop they were telling me about the H2 they had in.
It seems that full throttle only delivers 35% opening.
Sorting this raises peak power from 200bhp to 259bhp.

A worthwhile mod.

Was it in RAIN MODE ? :D

I know the mapping software is set quite severely to enable it to reach Euro 4 regs, and depending on what KTRC mode it's in (traction control) that can affect power delivery as well. ATM I'm still getting used to the riding position (gentleman's relish hard against the tank, chin over the steering damper) and the outrageous acceleration. Considering I'm keeping it around 4000 revs max to run it in, with the occasional blip to 6 or 7 thou, it's going to take a bit of time to settle in and be in a position to play with the various rider aid settings.

Bottom line is I'm having loads of fun on it, and the looks it gets from other riders and the plebs takes me back to when I'd just got my Z1-B and the effect that had at the time.

** STOP PRESS **
Just been accepted for a run at the Kop Hill Climb 2016 on Sunday 18th September. Brilliant event, registered charity with all profits going to local Bucks good causes. Come along and see me make a complete arse of myself (that's worth the price of a ticket on its' own).

Hope to see y'all next Sunday.

Ride safe.

Clutch hand in plastercast. Fell over and broke it while on the sauce at Spa. I hope it'll be ok for the SW rally this year. Just as the nice weather is kicking in. Dammit!!

Looks like the rain has finished.
Can anyone else confirm they are still going.
