new to me 2010
« on: July 30, 2014, 10:08:54 pm »
Figured I would make the intro official.  Today I got my tags done and title work.....couldn't get home fast enough to put tag on the bike and take it for an actual ride instead of the few miles I did at Bryans house.  I did a little putt around my house (in the country) and decided to take it down to a local MC shop and get it inspected.  To my surprise the Angel Gt's that had less then 5K
on them barely passed!  WOW.  Will be looking at options in the next few months.
   My observations so far:
handles great, unreal power great looking, wind protection is great (remember I am coming from a 1994 Vmax 17 years)!

I am a little unsure on the seating position.  Might end up getting the risers to get the bar a bit closer and higher.  A friend mentioned a way to lower the backend that will bring the bars up????? Did not follow what he meant.  Got a lot of "nice bike"
while at the shop.  Did about 50 miles then had to get home to cut grass!  LOL

 Forgot to ask,  I tried the econ mode for a few miles and the econ wording lit up.....then after inspection when I started it it did not light up....does it start out each time in regular mode, and if you want eco you hit it?
  I noticed that right next to the average mileage it says eco as well?????  Saw about 46mpgs and that was playing a little.  Pulled nicely up a large incline (Blue Mountain Ski area) in 5th doing 55 no problems!
