I really like it! This was my first time to really ride it since I got it and I"m already feeling pretty comfortable on it. I need to get the suspension tweaked but otherwise it was running great. Now I have no excuse for being slow out there. :laughing6 I just need to continue working on my skills and being smooth on the bike. Not quite there yet but getting better each trackday!
