Finally ditched the 11 year old 450 (well, not really ditched....it's still in the garage, but probably won't be seeing much action anymore) for a modern scoot. I had to actually sell the street bike to get the new dualsport, but I wasn't using that all that much either. So Friday night, I brought a new FE 501 home from Moto Forza. Today I gave it a 100 mile break in ride, changed the oil and gave it a once over. Tomorrow, it will probably hit the dirt at Big Bear. All I can say is man, what a trail bike! The only thing wrong with it is that it's too tall for me, more so than my other bikes, even with the low Seat Concepts saddle I had installed on it during prep. Not so much a problem on the trail as it is at stop lights and signs on the roads. Besides that, the bike fits me really well, feels really light and flickable and the suspension even works well, in spite of the fact that it is set up for a heavier rider. I've never had a more comfortable ride on a "out of the box" dualsport bike before. Gonna love this, I can see.
