1st ride on my 1090.........

been waiting for the shorty exhaust for like 7 months, so i never ridden it till today.
Initial feel was OMG holy super comfy soft shocks batman!!
I pull the brake lever and the whole front end sank down! i let go and it jumped back up, pretty funny actually.
whats worse was the fronts were already adjusted to the hardest and firmest settings already by Chen from CHmoto.
The seat feels huge and comfy, i thought i was on a harley compared to my old 910S.
Everything is relaxed and feels heavier than my old 910.

But once i got to the mountains, the thing tracks straight and true. For a person who hasnt rode for more than 7 months, this sh!t is confidence inspiring to say the least!

Its 110F out and sun blazing, doesnt feel too bad when idling in traffic, but once i got to my usual hang out spot im about to fall on the ground with a heat stroke.
Luckily the bike is comfortable, power delivery silky smooth (at first i thought this was a sign of weakness, but later on the way down, i cant believe how linear and awesome this power feels.)
I never rode it stock so i cant tell u how it rides, but with the shorty it feels stock, with the ecu and air/fuel tune which is nice.
Its not as violent as the old 910s, but definitely a lot easier to live with and I LOVE IT!!

i can go on and on, but im sure most of u has one already, so im gonna stfu. I just cant believe im one of the first ones to get it and never rode it till now. what a waste, im a retard,........ the bike is super good!
I bet it would be awesome with my girl in the back too!

oh, and how do i reset the trip meter back to zero??

Great colour scheme - love the wheels

As for re setting the trip computer - I need to refer to the instruction manual every time - it's a bugger !!
