hi. i had rode tested with no equipment instaled at the daytona bike show and thought it was smooth. after i saw the canadian adventure paquage and wanted to trade my loved f800s. so i did and had the chance to know the dealer and i uncrated my own bike at home and instaled carefuly all the 3 big boxes of the adventure equipment. it took 1.1/2 days to instal evething properly in blue locktite. at least i know now it is well done. good luck to the newbie mecanic at the dealer trying to instal all this correctly. i did now about 400kms and the bike is realy nice to ride very smooth and precise. it's got a high quality build sensation as well for all the rest of the adventure equipment. great bike. that little rubber shim deal put between the crashbars mouting point does make a huge difference. forums rule,thanks for the tip.
