2002 900 SSie, 2022 SS 950 S
Well 310 miles on the clock. Starting to loosen up a bit, tyres just about run in. Gotta love those Pirellis - so confidence inspiring. This has reminded me exactly why iItalian bikes again. Getting into the groove of it, oh yes.
Very, very pleased.....handles like a dream, and haven't even has the suspension set up properly yet...I thought I would leave it until the first service to give it a chance to wear in....maybe that was unnecessary?
Still having to watch the organic rev-limiter (AKA the right wrist)....having to remind my self to stop the upward climb at 5 1/2 thousand to stop the trail turning that pretty yellow colour....but it seems to get there so effortlessly, it's almost a shame to stop it. Especially during overtakes and the old traffic-light GP. But once it's run in properly, I can see this is going to be a right hoot.
I think this bike is just right for me - not quite as extreme a position as my 900SS or the V2 that Cov Duc kindly let me have a go on.
Really glad that Yamaha had to issue the recall on the FJRs.....'cos if it hadn't have happened, I wouldn't be here now! I suppose everything happens for a reason...........
So just need to get the first service in before Winter takes a grip.
