I'm just discovering this new bike and I really need to read the Owner's Manual throughout. I rode the bike to work today and only then learned that it had a Steering Lock. I wasn't expecting this.

I like the dashboard too, but have yet to explore what the Scroll button reveals.

I'm anxious to learn quickly what others have already discovered.

Do tell.

It doesn't take much to excite me.:happy: Seriously though, I think of this as a race bike and these kind of features don't add any value there. It barely did at work either as I feared someone would just pick it up and throw it in their truck. So I brought a cable lock too.

Exhaust bolts fall out.

10/4 on that one. I lost mine on both sides.

exhaust bolts as in the ones that are the plugs in the actual piping? One of them fell out on my exhaust.

Good, I'll give all my bolts (those in particular) a good looking over.

BTW, I heard someone comment on the kickstand. You know if you cut the nub off that crosses the path of the kickstand spring, the kickstand won't fold up on you automatically.

I know this sounds simple, but Speed-Sports showed me that trick. I don't know who'd want it the factory way.

Chock me up as one of those that like the auto kickstand. Maybe it is because I am really athletic and can figure out how to use it. I don't know. I am a stud.
