I must say the cruising at higher speeds is a hugh improvement over the older one.  The revs is much lower.  This was one of my concerns.

@Omninorm, it will have to be the K51 hey  8)

@silvrav, I went straight to dynamic, after the first 20km I was about 90% used to the throttle and dynamic mode is a lot of fun  :ricky: :ricky:

I must say the cruise control is also awesome on the bike.  First time I ride a bike with this feature.

One thing, does the bike have high and low beam, I know you can flash the high beam but how do you ride with the high beam permanently on and I had to figure out how the spots gets switched on.

Congrats on the fatty! :biggrin:

They are all awesome man.
Yeah there where you flash the lights for bright....you pull it in to flash..... click/push it forward the other way for brights.

I must say the cruising at higher speeds is a hugh improvement over the older one.  The revs is much lower.  This was one of my concerns.

The ONLY thing I liked more on the older one was the throttle funnily enough. Oh and maybe that at really low rpm it surges a bit...i.e hold the bike first gear 20kph....you will see what I mean.

But everything else the Lc by a long shot.

Also the first bike where i dont want to change the exhaust or screen  :)

Nice, the screen I will leave alone but the exhaust needs a change as I would like a little more grunting er sound.
