    From the seat forward I dig the bike. From the seat backwards not so much. I don't understand the rear fender set up. It looks out of sorts to me. It's like it was an afterthought or they missed their deadline and just threw a random fender on and just went with it. They need a redo on the rear fender as it's a little too 'hipsterish' to me. I still want the bike but there is no love for the rear area (of the bike).:whitstling:.

    I agree but it's sort of necessary in the EU. And yet - it seems some folk like it!.

    That does look rough. I'd guess it's a factory mule that they are using to put miles on for testing and R&D.

    They should let me test it. I'll find the weak points.

    I was looking at a youtube video and only just noticed the oil cooler at the front.

    Does that mean no oil header tank??
