I don't think I'm ready to go "full tard" yet, I haven't reached that zen in my riding yet.
Why should I when I have a perfectly good Duke in the garage whenever the mood strikes?
In all seriousness, I put a few more miles on the bike this weekend and it was... very different. I've never ridden a dirtbike in my life, it's all been sportbikes. I do like the upright riding position, but I was confused as to where to sit, there's SO MUCH seat! And after pulling over to check the rear tire pressure I later learned that they just are
light in the rear. That's a little disconcerting if you don't know! The bike definitely
needs a steering damper, even my husband admitted that it shakes at anything over 50. The only huge complaint I have is that it has no fairing. I really like having something to block some of the wind. My neck hurts!
I'll say it again though, I love
the motor. It's so smooth and controllable! Too bad the bike is so tall, the way it acts it would make a spectacular beginners bike, so confidence inspiring. And I thought it would be wierd and unstable in corners being so high but it actually felt (shhhh, don't tell anyone I said this) better than my SV.
