Forgot to mention a special thanks to Blamdiggity for hanging back and controlling the pace of the newer riders while a few of us up front got to play in certain sections. I did notice that and I appreciate it. Good job brother.

That's pretty much it, when you ride it first it's not love at first sight, gearing too tall, different seating position than the bike I had....especially the Beemer.
I think it's a more technical bike and less easy to feel confident right away than the Beemer or the ZX for example... But After awhile , it grows on you and for me the last track day at TWS (Texas World Speedway) was very interesting on how easy it it to flick the bike around , you can lean at deep angle and it's ultra stable... Great bike and we are comparing it with the other 2 or 3 best bikes in the market..,
Few more rides and you will love it, also for me a better damper was a must so it does not feel so light on the steering. ...

It is crazy stable for sure, my steering is stiff, only gets a bit light while moving. The gearing is going to have to get improved since leaning on 1st at 65mph is overpowering the rear wheel, above 55mph 2nd gear tries to be there from there on.
I am ordering a suit. I feel I will need more protection.
