    Hey guys!

    I normally post in the 765 section but since I got a chance to sample this beauty I thought I would post it here as well!

    Managed to get some seat time on the new bike and I must say, I really enjoyed it! Feels a bit more refined than the 1200RS with less buzz.

    Here are my thoughts on about a 20min test ride. Enjoy :)

    What fun! Thanks for the video and sharing your take on the bike. What a beautiful route along the water. Our local dealership had this model on display for two days recently but no test rides unfortunately. Thanks for the info!

    Thanks for sharing your impressions with us! Great video report. As Joe Mc Donald wrote: One could become really jealous of the local weather with you.;)

    Yeah we had some crazy heat wave a few days ago! I woke up at 2am and it was still 32 degrees! unbearable and I dont have AC!

    Our summers are generally quite hot, average between 25-35c most of the time.

    Thanks for watching :)

    I have been following an ice gritter in the lakes today for 6 miles, envious of the sunny days you have in SA
