Two weeks, and 2500km so far...
I picked my '12 650 after getting home from Afghanistan with a plan to go cross country on it until Hurricane Sandy wrecked everything.
The horn thing, I feel less bad now that it isn't just me!
I'm going to look into those lowering pegs, and also thinking about adding risers on my handlebars, as after a couple of hours I tend to get tensed shoulders and I think it'll help.
As for the TraX panniers, I broke one of the keys off in the lock the first day, but I had a locksmith make me new, proper keys, to replace the junk that's supplied. My dealer is going to steer anyone he sells them to to do the same.
I wish they supplied the dry bags that SW-Motech normally includes with those cases. And I do not understand why a centre stand isn't standard.
Overall though, other than I'm glad yoga has made me flexible to climb on to it, I'm pretty happy with the bike... It'll get at least another week before I have to winterize it. Next spring, I can't wait...
