My New Toy! :D

I'm very happy! Going to slap a touring seat on it though as I truly understand what everyone calls "Monster Balls" now.

Plus it was the first sunny day in Jersey in a while!

Question for M1100 Owners: I wanted to ask, do you get wrist pain in your right hand? I've owned two bikes before this and never had this problem? Is it because the reach is too far or the bars are bent funny?

Also, has anyone purchased the lower seat? Does it stop monster balls while giving you more seat height?

Thanks!

Congrats on your purchase.

To answer your questions, I don't experience pain in either wrist - but then again I have yet to experience the "monster balls" phenomenon that seems to affect everyone else. From what I've heard, the touring seat addresses your concerns to a point, but doesn't cure the problem completely. A few guys have had success by cutting the seat foam themselves.

I too don't experience monster balls and found that how you are situated within your underwear.........lol. No sore wrists either but the farthest I rode in one sitting is maybe 200 km.

Yup, sore wrist here too. In fact I went for a 300km ride on Sat and until today I still have a slight tender wrist! I am only an occasional rider though.

Very nice! Just gotta get rid of that gigantic tail now.
That is what all my motorcycle friends that see it say, everyone else just says "nice bike". I guess it's one of those things where if you don't know about it you wouldn't think about it :)

You might want to open that clutch up too. Mostly aesthetic, but it looks insane, I recommend looking at the speedymoto stuff.

Congrats on the new bike!! The shiny black looks crazy!
