Maybe a mod can fix the crooked picture? I sent this from my phone and can t fix it.

I took the bike for a very short test ride. It felt tiny compared to my 1000 and of course the Concours.
But I adjusted quickly to it and it was a blast to ride, and sounds mean as hell even in stock trim.
Power is soft on very bottom like a 600 but builds very quickly by 5 and 6000rpms, and pulls hard from there. Like my old 1000, you better be pointed where you want to go by the time she hits 8000rpms because you'll be there real quick!

I'll post more riding impressions and pics this weekend.

Rode the bike on the freeway. She's geared shorter than the 1000 but not to bad. Plenty of roll-on power to pass on freeway without a downshift. She moves out real good.
2 things that could be improved.
The brakes need ss lines and better pads.
Second: It takes a very firm push on the bars to change direction at freeway speeds. Maybe something with the electric steering damper can be adjusted...

NICE. I have the 750 and the 1000. I enjoy the 750, stock gearing compared to the 1000 stock gearing give similar sensation of acceleration.

I left the stock pipe on the 750 for now, and it does sound good! What year? Mine is a 2012. New?

I see 2014. I bargained mine from a buddy for $5K. Hope you did well, but I had higher miles.

I texted you a pic when I bought it.
Not sure if you got it, or maybe your number changed.
