Talking First Impressions

First Ride TODAY

The bike - 2009 XTR with 1800ks
Mods include Bash plate and Scorpion Cans

First Impressions:
The GOOD
* I LOVE IT - Great Thumping power - gets to 100 easily
* I CAN get my LEG DOWN (Just one but thats enough) so no need to modify the seat
* Amazing - I dont get any Helmet wind noises that I get with my GSX;-)
* Love sitting up high
* Its BLUE and WHITE


The STUFF That needs Fixing or I need to get used to :
* The Clutch Lever is very short and I am virtually am grabing the ball- an easy fix but it all adds up
* Went to fill it up and straight away the fuel rushed back up at me.. OK who put the fuel filler so deep in the tank?
* Handle Bar Vibes - Easily fixed - will soon be filling them with Silicone
* No where (yet) to put my bag

Still getting used to the tyres and their grip - so taking it easy

More to come after I ride home in the dark (havn't tested headlights yet..)
