I just rode the bike for the first time!
I'm in no way allowed to but I couldn't resist it. Hand is still pretty weak but it was strong enough to pull the very light clutch on the WR so I said fuck it and went anyways. The foot doctor said I was good to ride/drive so I just threw my boots on and it felt fine the whole ride.
The bike is SO much fun. I don't know if it's because I haven't ridden in a while but it definitely feels like it has way more than 27 hp. Or maybe I'm not used to the torque all being so down low in the RPM range. Either way it definitely has enough pick up around town. It only starts to really lose steam after 60 mph or so, but it still cruises at 60+ without a problem.
I can't get over how light this bike is. It just wants to fall into turns. I took a video of my maiden voyage on it but it's just a couple minutes of me going "hehehehehehe" the whole time so I don't think you guys would want to watch it.
Things that need to be addressed: suspension is way too soft, rear brake pedal is too high, and I still need to figure out the popping/backfiring thing. It sounds like the AIS thing that the FJ has, but sometimes it pops louder than the farting noise the FJ makes so I don't know what that's about. Also, while the motor was cold there was definitely a bit of stumbling going on down low. I should have let it warm up like I do normally, so that shouldn't really be a big issue.
Now the only question that remains is if I can stand riding it on the highway for any given amount of time. The engine itself is quite smooth but I'm more worried about ergos/wind protection/seat comfort. I'll address the seat soon with a Seat Concepts tall seat, and wind protection is similar to a naked bike (none), so I'm hoping it won't be too bad.
