R NineT Pure - 2017
Actually a funny thing has happened in the past 24 hours...Have you tried riding it hard?
This bike has tons of torque and is quite agile. My first ride was in Chianti Italy on SR 222. Twisty, hilly and amazingly fun. Find a great road and twist that throttle hard!!!!
I’m no novice to motorcycles but, that said, I hadn’t checked the tyre pressures since I bought it (schoolboy error, I hear you all shout ?) yesterday I checked them and they were between 4-6 psi too low - I’ve had plenty of bikes over the years and I wasn’t hugely alarmed by this but boy was I surprised by how much more alive the bike felt with them topped up. I’ve never noticed such a difference!
I made a point of riding it again this morning and it had me smiling. The suspension is still a bit wallowy for my liking but I’m going to get a full set up and possible spring change soon so hopefully that’ll address that.
So at the moment it has a stay of execution, which has pleased me immensely.
