I have only ridden it twice and now I'm on a brief vacation. I'm having a host of difficulties getting used to it. That shifter. Oh, I hate that shifter. If I don't bring my leg up high enough I hit the shifter and put it into neutral. Only happened twice. So, I'm getting used to swinging my legs wide to get on those foot rests or whatever they are.
The custom air intake I can feel against my leg.... There is no tach! Still I seem to shift naturally enough. Slow speed maneuvering needs a lot of work.
The first few turns were... Interesting. Takes a lot of effort. I was flicking my FZ6 around on the highway just before trading it in.... No flicking this beast around at least until I learn the inputs to make it do that.
All my muscle memory - is wrong on this bike. I'm going to need a lot of seat time to learn this. Protection from the wind, awesome. I have a new respect for the folks that can ride anything and switch back and forth. No problem speeding though.
Ah, and the distance for that back brake pedal to move before biting is impressive. I'm so used to small motions - and being extra light on the rear brake since I locked the rear on the FZ6 twice. I don't think I have to worry about that on the VTX1800.
