I am faster. But only because I have done track days.
We typically ride around Coshocton to Athens. I haven't done Hocking Hills on the n1k yet.. It turns in a bit slower than my GXXR did but at least I don't need to stop every 45 minutes to do yoga Going a bit slower is probably going to keep in shiny as well
Gary, good answers to ToNy's questions - he's a wee bit "controversial" as we used to say back in the "old" country, but like all of us here he's friendly! I guess neither of you are doing much riding at the moment with the rather drastic change in weather?! Can you clarify what you mean by CLG & CB though, I didn't register any different versions for the 2014 model.
Thanks for pointing that out, I bought a Green 2013 model, the only other option was a white version that wasn't an option for me at all. To honest the green looked great anyway and I like the balance of green and black for my year; no offense, but I found the 2014 CLG had a bit too much green in it, although it wasn't an isue as I bought mine in January 2013.
LOL, the green does stand out somewhat! Mine has still got that impact, but with the green broken up with the back tank! I'm with you, I never thought I'd like a green bike so much; I had a ZX-9R E1 in red and black that I thought was stunning and a Yamaha YZF-600 (Thundercat in the UK) in red, black and white, but the N1K is without doubt the best bike I have ever had, the riding position is comfortable without being like an arm-chair, the engine is phenomenal with dump-truck loads of torque and it looks great as well.
