Hey dude! Congrats on the wheels! I bought a 1997 F3 about 5 weeks ago and love it. I too am totally psyched! i had a 1985 500 Interceptor quite a while ago, but DAMN this is quite a difference. I have had it just past 155 on the highways and the best I got on the 500 was about 115. I am enjoying the riding and learning as well. Thought about trading this in already for a newer slightly bigger bike, but then decided against it going to take this to the Keith Code school and learn. If I wreck it I won't cry all that much, but if I did with a new CBR or RC51... I would shed some big ol' crocodile tears.
Well, good luck! See you in the funny papers!
