Elvisto,I don't agree, the throttle response isn't dangerous at all, It takes a little getting used to, but so do most bikes I've ridden, ( read all bikes)
The video didn't show what he did wrong, did he try to do a wheelie and lost it, who knows, I did notice the rear disc was rusty, ! ,
I always go to a deserted car park and do some figure of 8s, a few emergency stops,and a lot of slow riding just to get used to the bike, I did this with the Scrambler , not as much because I rode it home 140 miles, but I still got out there to practice, Just my 2 cents worth
I'm doing the same as you. Just emptied out my van ready for collecting my FT tomorrow. Just not too interested in riding my new bike along the motorways home.Sticking my neck out a bit here.
From the start I thought 'he doesn't look too cute', un-sure and un-steady coupled with the flo jacket etc. Before I knew what the rest of the film was I knew he was a licence holder not a biker.
I'm not criticizing, we all have to start off somewhere and riding in front of people is the first hurdle to over come.
I've seen a few people outside the workshop after getting new tyres fitted, when riding off in front of the 'usual characters' socialising at the gate, give it a bit too much throttle and slide out the rear wheel, some have come off, one went into the fence next door but most 'just' catch it and their arse takes a bite out of the seat.
I'm well confident and have covered many thousands of miles on bikes. jumping from one bike to another on a steady basis, but, I still don't like collecting my new bikes and riding away from the shop. I prefer to use my van and take it home.
