Yep i rode it 15 miles home then went out for a quick ride with hubby. We swapped over so he could have a go,but he's got shorter legs than me,bless im,so he didn't feel comfortable. Laughing

Was hoping to give it a wash and polish and take some pics today......thats if it stops raining long enough Rolling Eyes

WOW!......what a fantastic bike,it's a dream to ride! Cool

Everything about it is so much better...better handling,sharper steering etc. It is so much easier to ride than the SV......and of course it goes like 'shit off a shovel' affraid

I can't wait to get back out again Laughing The engine sound is higher than i'm used to on the SV,so i keep wanting to knock it another gear! Rolling Eyes

Well it's been a few weeks now and me and the Daytona are getting along very nicely Very Happy
I'm going to lower the clutch/brake levers though.....a couple of weeks ago we did a 200 mile round trip and a was in tears with the pain in my left wrist due to alot of stop/starting Rolling Eyes on the way home i was really struggling to pull the clutch in. Now i've actually took notice i think the lever is too high therefor putting more strain on my wrist. But other than that everythings hunky-dory,got some new leathers and boots,which is making the gear change alot better cos my old boots were too big.

have you got that clutch sorted? I know what you mean over pain ...
I had the same problem with my CBR. with the GSX its that the reach of the clutch is to long but i have fully adjusted it and still have to stretch my hand too use it, which is very tiring

Yep,i've lowered the lever,but i'll need to do a long run to see if it's done the trick.
One of the first things i noticed was the harder suspension so i've put the suspension settings back to standard and i'll gradually tweek it to suit me........i'm learning as i go Smile
