I really like the gentleness coming off of idle while putting along on dirt and some places that the bike really doesn't belong.
The flash really does make that engine run sweet.
After owning a 07 then buying the 2015, something I have mentioned many times, one that not many of us think about, that is I come from a small community, ( it is more like a city now), but it is centered in Mennonite both Amish and Old order plus new order ( those that drive all black cars).
Canadian Tire Elmira ONT. Shelter for the Mennonite Buggy's
Where I am going with this, there was many a day when I would sit on the front porch and watch traffic go by, many versions of buggy's , and many times teams of beautiful horses pulling, one thing that was supper annoying was the pocket rockets flying by revving in the 4000-5000 RPM range, spooked the horses and also made many people look on these motorcyclists with contempt . So fast forward me on my 2015, finding out the 2000 to 4000 RPM sucked, I got use to riding through these villages and towns, that's right in the 4000 to 4500 RPM range, every so often I got looks, so thinking back since I adapted to my 2015, I could see anyone exposed to my riding technique having grounds to be annoyed, and the looks I got I very much doubt they were thinking, what a nice motorcycle and a really thoughtful guy riding it, too bad he doesn't stop so we could chat
So the new flash puts a smile on my face. Since we have many that have had it done on this forum, I don't find the need to promote it anymore, like anything , some people just can't be convinced or justify the expense.
And yes, going through those small towns I am in the 2500 to 3000 RPM range now.
