Bought an '5 919, shiny black, 2 weeks ago, already put 400+ miles on it. Been riding since I was 15, including BMWs, and this is the best little bike I've ever ridden.
The only two things I don't like are - the grips are cheap, and too hard. Any recommendations? I saw some reasonably looking ones on JCWhitney, but if anyone has any suggestions. I bought some on ebay, paid for them, they never arrived, and the seller says i got them, when ... in fact... i DIDN'T. oh, well, i didn't need that $19.47 anyway. word to the wise - don't buy from cycleacc on ebay.
Same thing re mirrors - boy, do they SUCK. I can't see directly behind me, which is scary, especially riding in New York City. Oi. Suggestions?
Nice forum yous guys have going here, btw...
