    Hehe..a peach indeed. Man the thing is a beast. I was sooo suprised how much more power it has than the 390 I tested. Glad I took my time and saved as I'm sure I would have gotten bored of the 390 very quickly.

    remember that irrespective of your age and riding experience, research has shown that a rider is most at risk approx 4-5 months after getting on a new bike

    that is the peak danger period where you are just sufficiently comfortable with your new bike for you to start having brain farts

    be safe out there and enjoy the bike

    Awesome!

    Now go and post a photo and update your profile with the new bike.

    Have fun and stay super safe!
