ffb13 Posted April 18, 2015 Share Posted April 18, 2015 i went back today for a second test ride and your opinions and suggestions on my first test ride were very helpful. i listened to you and corrected my riding for this bike. today was a good experience. as it was suggested ,i was not doing the throttle correctly. i am used to a cable and this new computer aided throttle is too sensitive. i was able not only to get good control of it but i also rode in A mode on I95 and in back roads and streets with lights .all fine.,no jerkiness at all. but i did find that the A or STD mode do not really add any power to the bike. all it does is create a faster reaction to the twisting of the throttle.or , change the degrees of twist . thus ,a more NOW factor. on I95 i noticed ,and also elsewhere that the bike does have vibrations as you enter 4,800 rpm and they go away and return and so on...but not a major issue ..i felt it thru the pegs and also the roar of the bike came thru loud and clear at higher rpm's. the wind does hit me at shoulder and chest level...ok in summer but not so good in winter .position of screen was up. great handling . the seat kept pulling me forward even at the high position.easy fix ,just have to open it up and replace the foam they use with ensolite closed cell material which i have done on all my bikes , and contour the seat for a lean back position. at the end of this short ride i still do not know .............maybe the rt is for me ,who knows ...but i do like the low weight of this bike. and the fun factor..unfortunately when a bike or car has a great fun factor it is usually miserable on long trips . and i do take long trips and also no longer care to have two or more bikes ........we will see .
