So i put a day pass on the husky 610sm i just bought and finally had my first chance to ride it. After 6 years of riding sportbikes it definetly takes some getting used to. I bounced off the rev limiter a few times learning a totally different power band. Grab more throttle sooner..check. It seems most of the grunt is in the last 1/4 of the throw. Might have to get a quick turn throttle to fix that
Its like learning to ride all over again. 120kph feels quite fast compared to a sportbike when your almost falling asleep at that speed. Tight twisties its plenty fast, but it feels wierd to be leaning the opposite way.
Rode past the same motorcycle cop twice today with no plate on(day pass was in my jacket) and just got a friendly wave both times!! That never happens on the gixxer, lol. Could have been the full leathers and sidi boots. I diddnt look like some punk that just stole it.
Diddnt get a chance to take it on dirt yet, but im itching to. Overall a very fun bike, but i have alot of work to do as far as my riding skills go. Its gunna be a fun summer next year.
