Hello guys, Greg here in SC. Just picked up a black 09 with risers, Sargent Seat, Ivan's flash and Leo Vince SBK Exhaust. I had about a 125 mile ride home from down near Savannah, long enough to realize that I'm going to really like this bike! The bike's really comfortable, smooth and powerful. I love the Kawi engines, have a ZZR1200 also that's very smooth and really hauls too, just not nearly as comfy. Also had an 07 FJR, but think I'm going to enjoy this connie more. Gotta get back down to one bike so it looks like the ZZR and Valkyrie Interstate are gonna have to go. Looking forward to putting some miles on this bike and gleaning more valuable knowledge from you guys here at COG.
