Bought a 599

A yellow one. Great little bike with surprising sporting ability. So easy to ride. Now if honda can get the sport screen here in the USA, I want it.

How's it run? I just sat on one at a dealership an hour ago and really liked it, but it was not charged up so no test drive today. Let me know whatever you can about it, if you would.

First thing is that it is a small bike, by that I mean it fits smaller riders like myself great. It's typical honda, everything works the way it should. Comfortable, with plenty of real world power and handling. I traded in a triumph speed triple to get the 599. It's a great fit for me. I think it's the best of the mid-sized naked bikes, but thats just my opinion.

See my wifes at the following link

we swapped out the handle bar with an aluminum renthal bar from a CRF-450 alot wider and straiter.
that stock bar had a weird narrow bend made my wrists feel uncomfortable.

I personaly ride a gsxr-600.
