Bike delivered

Had bike delivered this week end

Managed to ride it for 1 mile before the heavens opened up

Initial impressions are good

My bike has had the Cush drive done and the new map, as I never experienced the old problem maps I cannot comment on the improvement. I can say that the bike rides perfect and as you would expect any new bike to ride.
I think now is the time for MCN to re review the bike

No snatchy throttle, smooth clutch, smooth engine, pulls away no problems.

Bike came with all the bits, manuals, USB, charger etc

The brakes are excellent, and give great confidence and feel

The engine is a gem, although it does sound like the crank is trying to throw itself out of the casing
It sounds excellent especially right up the rev range ( I'm not sticking to the 'run in' suggestion as in my experience it's not needed, just ride sensibly for an hour or so)
The exhaust roar and induction hola always put a cheeky grin on my face while riding

Hopefully next few days will be nice so I can open it up and burn the new bike smell off it

Put just over hundred miles on her now.
Noticed a few things, in particular, how harsh the ride was over poor roads.
Was going to spend the day fully resetting the suspension, then working it good
On preparing to setting the preload, I found that the compression and rebound were set wrong. In fact the compression had the rebound settings, and vice versa.
Still wound back on front and rear springs a bit to get the right drop when I sat on it. Set the comp rebound to the road settings stipulated in the manual table and voila, sweet as a nut. I think with a gel insert for the seat could become a more comfortable bike for covering distance.

Not particulary impressive for a dealer to allow the bike to go out with those settings
