    12k service booked in for beginning of Sept. Liking the engine a lot!
    Butterfly valves have jammed in all the bikes I have had them on I don't expect this will be any different at some point.

    I used Motofreight to ship my bike to Miami, absolutely excellent service. I don't see how they could have possibly made it any easier. Full set of instructions to follow, made it all quite simple.

    I'm not tall, I can't touch the ground with both feet at the same time, swapping sides is not a great plan at all.
