Picked her up today

2015, with just under 8K miles. Corbin seat, heated. Doubt I will use that option though. Lowered, and looks like it has bar risers. New Michelin Road 5's at 7K miles. Took the top and side cases off for transport. It was 27 degrees, so the test ride was fun, lol, but she runs out nice, shifts well. Did have a bit of brake pulsing on initial braking, so I think I'll start by cleaning/freeing the bobbins.
Overall, I'm super happy with how comfortable she is

and can't wait for warmer weather.

bit of brake pulsing on initial braking
I dont know of anyone here who got anything out of freeing up the bobbins for pulsing myself included like Smiley said. Search"Front brake pulsing" on this site or elsewhere. The common fix is geting EBC double sintered brake pads which are metallic and don't leave a residue when hot at a stop. Careful with brake fluid, its acetone and eats paint really well. I prefer rubbing alcohol and some fine emory paper wrapped around a small block of wood.
