My favorite thing is to ride and shoot pictures along the way. Went for a short ride today (50 miles or so) on the Falco mostly with the intent of getting some good pix to send to my very envious brother and a couple of others.
I've put about 130 miles on the bike and I'm still getting used to most everything about it. I rode my 1600cc Kawasaki this morning and then jumped on the Falco this afternoon. Talk about "culture shock"!
Beyond the radically different seating position I had to keep reminding myself that the Falco is not happy being short shifted and lugged like the Kaw. Duh...
The riding position on the Falco is not that much to deal with if the roads are interesting and there's things going on. I'd sure hate to put in 300 miles on the freeway though. My aged body would require medical attention at the end of the day.
All in all though the Falco is just a major rush to ride (like you guys didn't know that). It's going to take me a while to get a good handle on it and that's part of the fun. Figuring out the electronic instrumentation could be a lifetime project though, even with the cheat sheet.
Anyway, here's a link to the pictures if anyone is interested:
