312 Owners: How do you like it?

I' m looking at a new 312 and wanted to know how you liked it. I now have a 1000R but listed it for sale. Any problems with the 312 thus far? Thanks for the input.

Don't plan on to many replys

They are all out ridding and can't get the grin off the face to even see straight to type a reply. This 312 is like no other and the quiality is like no other.

I haven't had any problems at all with my 312, it's pure pleasure to ride on the highway! I want to avoid city riding with our summer heat though. Coming back to the Valley from higher elevations in the afternoon last weekend with 100+ temps was uncomfortable, temp gauge was running between 210-215 with just an occassional stop light. Higher elevations at speed the gauge was between 180 and 195.

I rode my 1000R a few weeks ago in 100+ Temp at nite and my temp was 220+ so I know what you mean. My R only has 400 miles on it. May by thats why.

I have done commuting and a track day at Assen with the 312 and so far I can say it is better suited for the track than for commuting but that I knew upfront. No problems what so ever with the bike though. It does get hot in traffic but nothing serious ie the fans come on and it cools down a little. Once you're out of the traffic it flies. Recommended!!!
