Mythical Mod of Yore
ive been a member since ~2006 when i bought my gen 1. best bike ive ever owned. ive had several since then and havent been on .net for a while simply because i havent had a 10r and ive had little to add to the conversation. my latest steed was a 2015 diavel. not a canyon carver, but a great bike. the kind of bike that makes you look back over your shoulder as you walk away. today i made the boneheaded decision to trade her in on a 2018 10r. even though i have a cbr600 for tossing around the twisties, i thought i was missing something by not having a liter class sport bike. i knew within five miles id made a mistake. it has tons of power, sure...but so much so that its unusable on the road...and on most of the tracks in the south east. and its big and bulky and seems like itll take a heavy hand to flick it around. at the end of the day, there doesnt seem to be anything special about this bike...its just another sport bike. sigh. its likely an exercise in futility, but im going back to the shop on tuesday and going to try and get my diavel back. this is the only motorbike purchase ive ever truly regretted.
