New 1125R owner

Hello from Trenton, NJ! I just traded in my 05 sportster for a brand new 08 1125R. I also have a VRSCDX. I had the opportunity to purchase this bike at a great price and jumped on it. I'm looking forward to reading about what you guys are doing with your Rs. Pictures to follow this weekend when I have daylight to take them.

nice! It seems like a great bike. Only problem for me is that I cannot see past my shoulders in the rear views. Do you have this problem?

Not so much, aside from always pointing down hill, my biggest prob. was trying to hold city speeds, below 35 it will buck even in 1st or 2nd gear. It's in getting its first service and they will check the fuel mapping. The bike is going to take some getting use to.

I hear that man...this bike just wants to run. Def some adjustment time is needed to really be able to control it.
