Well thank you very much Led Zed 👍
You as well.  Just returned from a ride and working on grinding down those tires so I can get a proper tire on there lol.  Lots of twisties by by home and she sure is a lot of fun.

Having come from a great bike in cb650f, I can say this one brakes better, handles better with the stiffer suspension, shift smoother with the slipper clutch, and of course the power and the torque, there is no comparison, this one is a rocket!  Having a lot of fun.  Great bike and a worthy upgrade.  The cb was a great trainer as it was similar size and weight.

Looking good dude. I got my 2021 about 3 weeks ago and just hit 400 miles. Trying to ride as much as I can to get her broken in. Hard to keep the rpms low for break in tbh! Got any mods in mind?

Thanks Coalboy and Jaanpla. 
Got my break in done.  Wasn't redlining her, but did break her in firmly.  Really smoothed out since I put Honda GN4 10-40 in there.  Just have to change every 3k miles. 
As far as mods so far.  Did a tail tidy, larger windscreen, radiator guard.  And doing the Ermax belly fairing in matte spark black.
Going to do full exhaust.  With an S1 clone.  Blacking it all out and plan to do a flash tune with 2wheeldynoworks.  And that's gonna do it 😁
Ordered my parts and looking at a monrhs eta.
Getting estimates for black ceramic paint as this point.  It's a really great bike as is.  Wanted to go all out with this one.

Dang, those black/reds are looking good.  :001:

Might want to look into a SW-MOTECH kickstand foot enlarger. That itty-bitty stand foot likes to sink into stuff pretty easily.

Red Rooster, thanks for the tip.  I'll have to look into that.  Yeah, the lean angle is a bit much when parked. 
I tried the ergo seat.  I think I like the original better.  I'm about 5'11.  Still undecided there.
Either way it's an awesome bike and keeping her in the stable lol.  I do love the rumble of the stock exhaust at high revs.  Can't way to try my new stuff when it gets here.

Beautiful bike!   Looks exactly like mine.   I have over 700 miles on it and i've only had it 3 weeks tomorrow.   It's an absolute blast to ride.   It can be as tame or as wild as you want it to be.   I find exucses to go out and ride every chance i get!   Enjoy, have fun, and be safe!
