My Bavrian Beast

Picked her up Wed.
Got 300 Miles on her now.
HOLY SMOKE !! Smooth, fast , and stable. ABS is unreal. Saved me $ 85 on insurance. One of the best features is the shift assist. At any throttle opening you just shift...no clutch, and you better hang on !!
I now look like the village idiot caus i cant stop walking arround with a silly grin on my face !!!....Gotta get a radar detector......soon .

Thanks ! My son probably thinks I finally flipped my lid as I have been on Harleys since 1975.
I went from Stone age to Space age.

I think it'S MANDITORY that you ride in miserable weather !! At least I'll make use of the heated hand grips.

I just learned that they have a low seat option...lowers it over an inch...lower then the 919...

I was looking at the #'s for this beast...too much throttle and I'd launch my self into orbit.

The low seat is nice.With boots on I can get good footing.It's only an inch or so lower than the high seat. It's a lot taller than my Low Rider !!
Launching yourself into orbit describes exactly what happens when you twist your wrist !!!

Very nice - after you get a few more miles on her, would you mind giving us a little write-up review?
