Well I broke the 500 mile mark with a Jaunt down the interstate today. not far about 27 miles or so, just a different way home that leads to some awesome curvy country roads for the last 10 miles or so.
I bow my head in face of defeat as my major complaint about vibes seems to slowly be evaporating, as many of you said they would as miles accumulated. The joy buzzer in the seat and bars that showed up at around 5200 rpms or so has tuned down to a relatively mild tingle at this point. However it seems to have moved up the RPMS to the 6k rpm range now. I feel , like the vibes in the 5k range, the more time I spend up there, the better it will get.
The bike seems to have no issue accelerating in top gear to pass, etc within reason. Didn't seem to get blown around much. What I did get blown around I contribute to my bulky winter riding gear that catches much more wind. I lost a lot of weight the last 16 months, so my gear fits kinda loose and catches turbulence pretty easy. I need to get tighter fitting gear anyway for safety.
Suspension seems to be softening a tad.. However the tires had almost 48 lbs in them. I took them both down to the 36'ish mark. That helped a lot with the jolts on small bumps. I still plan on softening at least a notch, maybe 2.
Still not in love with the motor. It certainly is adequate however, and I expect it to perform slightly better as miles continue to climb and everything loosens up a bit more.
Oh.. the seat. I have spent a couple hours on that seat on more than one occasion, and I honestly dont feel it to be that bad?
Pegs need to be wider, probably my main concern after getting Grip Puppies.
Plans at this point seem to be Guards (hand and engine)
Possibly a 16 tooth sprocket, although a good 85% of my riding is at 65 or below on country roads and commuting so I may stick it out. It didnt seem to bad buzzing along at 75 MPH or so yesterday.
Possibly a better rear shock, we will see after I tinker with the stocker a bit.
Probably luggage, or at the least a tail bag setup for the time being.
It's growing on me.
