Just ordered the 848SF after riding one yesterday from my local dealer. Im coming back to road riding from a few years of just track riding. Found the bike really usable with plenty of power for the roads. I was soo impressed. Haven't had that much fun on a bike for years.
Yeah defo. I had a SFS for a weekend back in 09. Was an amazing bike but maybe a little too much for road riding. Not too sure I would need full Ohlins and mono blocks etc. Would be a nice to have but wasted on me lol
you sure about that, after years of track riding you probably know a thing or two about suspension. I bought a M1100 rather than the S version with the Ohlins. Price was a big part of it as Showa forks aren't bad when setup and are easy to improve further with a few internal parts and the Ohlins rear on the S has no rideheight provision to deal with the change in rear ride height when you opt for a change of gearing. So spent the money saved by buying a new adjustable length WP Shock with Hi-Lo damping for £400
