Hi from Sydney

Hi All,
Just collected my Black & White 310R from the dealer, one of four pickups for the day!
I'm a mature rider that was looking for a good lightweight commuter also capable of weekend countryside romps.

What a bundle of fun these things are..

congrats on the new bike and welcome to the community! Never been to Sydney, but I've always imagined it to be the land of amazingly scenic riding trails.

I picked mine up on 7/07/17 and it's done over 4000 km already. I'm really enjoying my wee beastie.

+1 that's my kind of mileage, 3 days in and 650 km. Loving the precise and stable handling.

A nice little ride up the Putty road north of Sydney on Sunday, a round trip of 400 + km on 13 litres of fuel.

That is better than 71 miles per US gallon. What kind of avg speeds were you traveling at? Also what are your RPMs at about 100kph in 6th gear?
