Now that is just way too cool! That makes me want to make my wife learn to ride just so I can go out and find a matching companion.
Have you tried lowering it and getting her on it yet? Lucky lady, no one else is going to have a bike like her!
Thanks! She's very excited, has ridden it a few miles already without lowering it. Figured out the left foot down at stop lights quickly, didn't have any problems other than trying to back it up. Loves the handling and power compared to her Vulcan 500, totally different experience.
The rear shock is already set on the second to lowest setting, I'll go ahead and knock it down to the last notch tomorrow and tinker with the front forks a bit. Plan to send the seat out to Spencer's Seat Mods for shaving and gel insert.
I would almost bet it's the only Yellow Hornet in town, haven't ever seen another 599 of any color. I was very impressed with it, just a blast to ride. Very light feeling, more compact than the 919, pegs are closer, bars are closer and narrower. Revs like crazy, decent power down low and then screams above 8000rpm.
Good stuff, can't wait to start the modding...
