Going to be doing some modding, to make the bike more comfortable and to attempt the impossible -- create a bike that I can ride on the track and then the street without pounding my kidneys into dust. First impressions is that the suspension is set up soft, so it's at least comfortable on 90% of the roads I ride. The bars were swapped out, as I didn't like the bend -- they hiked my elbows up like I was a supercrosser. The engine is pretty sweet, still gently breaking it it, but it seems pretty peppy, can easily go on the highway, and returned 58mpg. There are lots of cool bolt-ons for these bikes, so stay tuned. Goal is to have it broken in (as in 2000km) by the June trackday, so I can take it out with a clear conscience. 750km in and a month to go -- better get on it!
