Ranger,
Bit off topic, I am interested why you prefer the road bike to the adventure bikes you had?

i rode superbikes many years ago....couple of years ago started riding again, single cylinder, twins, v-twins.....the 4 cylinder is so much smoother, handles better and accelerates in any gear to over 200, ......nothing wrong with adventure bikes, i will get one soon as a weekend play bike, but this honda is such a pleasure to ride

As a recent owner of a Biffer i've noticed the clunky 1st gear. I'm interested to try the 5 second rule. I'll give that a go.
