    Oh damn. Just put a deposit down to reserve an 850 when it comes in. I currently ride a 2018 Street Twin and despite loving it, at 6'1" with 33" leg with dodgy knees I just fancy a little more height and comfort, plus a bit more wind protection will be nice. Love the looks and handling of my Street Twin, but my head's been turned after sitting on a few different bikes at my nearest dealership. I was surprised how comfortable and light the 900 was. I have made it clear to the dealer that I want to make a final call after testing a 900 that they are setting up for demo. I want to make sure the ergonomics work for me more than anything. Not in the slightest bit concerned about the peak power, but the lack of lean ABS is the main thing that I would have quite liked given the meaty front brakes. Heated grips and guards are an easy extra to make riding on colder days a bit more pleasurable.

    Well, test ride went well, so; PXL_20211027_121050354.jpg
    I feel lucky, sounds like the global logistical problems have thrown the supply chain into disarray. Had I not got a deposit down, I would be waiting until next year.
