    Re: Downsized my camping Motorcycle

    Time for an update now that I have had an opportunity to get a few rides in under my belt. No long rides yet
    as just getting use to the difference.

    My impression so far:

    Pros:

    Great little bike.
    Seat is very comfortable for being stock. No need for a different seat.
    Rides nice and smooth. No vibrations.
    Nimble and very responsive.
    Easy no move around.
    Exceptional gas mileage so far. Averaging 70.33 mpg (imperial).
    Plenty for get up and go for me. Puts out 76 bhp.

    Con:
    Haven't found any yet.

    Great little bike. Sure enjoying it.

    Few days ago visited my friendly mechanic and he walked me through proper lubing of the chain
    and what I should keep an eye on.

    Tweaked a few areas to suit me.

    Tomorrow going to see him again and will install a usb adapter to power my Nuvi gps, etc. Going to wire it to plug into the
    battery tender cable from the battery. Looking at putting on a on/off switch by the usb adapter.

    Looking forward to riding and camping with the black beast.

    Everyone ride safe.

    Congratulations. Just remember a slightly slappy chain is a happy chain.
