    Picked up the RR this evening.

    Certainly different; need more time to fully assess.

    I'm guessing the fact that the 140 mile trip home (A-road/motorway mix)
    was accomplished in less than 2 hours is a fairly positive omen.

    Did another 100 or so miles today and I'm getting more of the measure of it.

    I can't be arsed to write a lot, however here's a summary

    Big. Really proper big.
    Slow to steer.
    Suspension well controlled.
    Engine ideal for legal and a bit speeds, just right for overtaking the
    majority of A-road traffic without fuss.
    Luggage too small to be practical (and Givi rack is poorly designed)
    Brakes continue to make me giggle.
    The seat is really awful.

    So far I'm not convinced one way or the other; some aspects I love, some
    I hate, only time will tell which will win out
