Curios Stroy - My F3 is here !
after a long time waiting for my red/silver F3 where I was told of many different delivery dates and promises, my F3 finally arrived on Friday!
I ordered my bike last year in September and was promised to have it on January, at least on bike seasons begin! Nothing was true and I started to check out for alternatives...
My dealer called me yesterday with a very strange sound in his voice. He said that my F3 arrived.....but......wrong color !!!!!
I was first shocked and ask what happend. I was in Milano Italy to see the F3 in real after I ordered. There was only the white and the red/silver to see and sit on. The black one was not available at that time, so I deceided to stay for the red/silver as the white one was not my favorite.
30 minutes after the call I arrived at my dealers office to burn down anything in my way....had some classic music in my car ;-) Thanks to god !
When I came in the !black! F3 stand there and flashed me completly ! It looked so damn hot !!! The second I saw here I decided to go for black now and no longer wait for another F3 in red/silver. I guess red/silver is more traditional but black looks a bit more sporty (IMHO).
So I paid the bike some minutes after and setup anything for next week!! Its mine !!!
I had the chance to do a short round with the black F3 and again I was flashed. What a sound !!!! The mapping is really a bit strange in lower rpm but not as much as it was complained by some magazines. Also the clutch is not that bad....When the bike is on speed, it is amazzzzzzzing. Second gear full speed wheel up (a little) !! TRUE !! And again.....that sound is fantastic and loud ! I like it soooo much ! So now the bike has 10km and will be in my garage on I guess Monday.
I am so happy !
My dealer confirmed the new mapping for the next 2 to 3 weeks! He told me that the original mapping was neccessary to fit some europe regulations about emission and so on. He also told me that another mapping will be available together with a modified exhaust component. The bike has a lot of power yet....wow, how will it be with all the modifications ? GREAT
As you guys could see, I am so happy!!
Hope you like the pictures...

How I envy you, I am still waiting for the call, looks like next month and with a bit of luck the fueling problems will be resolved.
Plenty of sleepless night at the moment, the only good news is the weather, being selfish, I hope it last for the next couple of weeks or so

If you don't like it, or have not seen one, why bother posting something like that.
Go see for yourself, and if you don't like it you can just move on, without trying to insult this gentleman's new bike.
