This is an excellent machine. The reviews in the magazines have it right. I find that for a naked bike, it has excellent wind protection. The tank deflects a lot of wind away from your legs and the headlight assembly ramps some wind upward and away from your chest. The acceleration is strong and smooth, shifting is smooth, no noticeable vibrations, excellent handling, and the new ABS brakes are crazy good. My longest ride so far was two hours in the saddle and no complaints. The stock saddle is breaking in nicely. I also have the computer (because the bike hit the showroom floor with it), but I don't have the complaints of the last reviewer. I'm alright with knowing the temp within 9/10 of a degree, and frankly didn't notice the increments until he pointed it out. I haven't noticed the fuel gauge to be that inaccurate, but I rely on the tried and true method of using the tripmeter (the bike has 2 trip meters) and just look for fuel around 180 miles, which leaves plenty of reserve. I also didn't notice any problems with the self cancelling signals. If they cancel before your turn often enough to annoy you, the problem is with the rider signalling too early, not the machine. This is a straightforward, comfortable, high quality, rip roarin' roadster. Forget about the gee wiz computer stuff and just ride.
