First chance to get out on the new interceptor today and just got back from a 110 mile "running in" bimble.
Stuck at 4000 rpm max' for the first 500 miles so not tearing up any trees just yet, but 4000 rpm equates to 66mph in sixth gear, so not too bad and a very torquey engine and slick gearbox makes it a pleasure to ride.
A few adjustments to make to brake pedal, gear lever, handlebars and brake and clutch levers, but other than that enjoyed the ride. :D
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".
