    Happy New Bike Day
    « on: 2016-03-27 12:21:26 »
    Picked my bike up yesterday.
    The weather was cold and raining, not pleasant. Non the less the bike was terrific.


    Huge difference in the gearbox, since 2013. gear changes are precise with no clunk, it may loosen of. Keyless ride, mmm, not sure about that yet. Hill start control, i thought was fantastic, great feature. The lights are a bit confusing, far to many buttons and controls, don't think they're required. still can't figure them out, ha ha.
    Really pleased with the bike, big difference in three years.


    Dave

      Enjoy your ride - summer is coming!


      Regarding keyless: I thought the same at the beginning, but now got used to it and like it. Give it some time.
      It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)

                Thanks Dave, I picked it up from Harry Fairbairns in Inverness, time to book it in for its 500 mile service already  ;D

                  The bike comes with a separate manual for the audio. Even I got that manual although I don't even have the audio.
                  If you didn't get it you can also find it in the download section /index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=14
