I'd just like to say thankyou for allowing me into your inner sanctum of insight and knowledge, just a couple of things I don't have ...…. Well actually there's probably more than a couple but anyway that's another story. I have just brought a C109, not the first bike I have owned and I wouldn't advise any one to buy one as there first bike either. The last bike I had was a C50 and that was ok right up until you twisted the throttle two up on the highway to pass any thing and nothing happened for a while and eventually you would get passed by some thing else. On the other hand the C109 two up with the bags full of gear you can twist the throttle and before the engine warms up I'm already in Sydney, it has a sh*t load more power and requires a little more concentration to ride, well that is until I get more familiar with it. So wish me luck and I look forward to spending time here with like minded individuals like yourselves. Cheers Flash.
