Shift linkage is a bit different. Seems short. Love that paint
Congrats! You may need to bring a tarp with you if you ride that to Eureka next year, to protect it from everyone drooling on it!Yeah, I definitely need a sissybar, so I will go with some kind of 2-up seat. Just rode by the DMV and got a tag and applied for title, sitting in the coffee place now.
This is a huge adjustment. Although she's heavier than the FXSTC, she feels lighter. Mainly, I am not at all accustomed to the throttle, I am going to have to get them to adjust that if I can. Out the box, I need to bring that rear brake pedal up, I hate having to press down to it. A suspension upgrade will also be in the future at some point, I definitely want the front stiffer, though it's not bad. Not a huge fan of the existing riding position (leaned a little more forward than I would like), but that'll change when I decide on a seat and get different bars. Though again, it's not too bad.
Otherwise, I love it. Mostly just need to adjust a few things for the time being and get used to how the throttle responds. Main issue at the moment is resisting the temptation to goose it.
Once I get done here, going to head home and start the process of applying the ceramic coat after she cools off, install license plate, read owner's manual and start f***ing with s**t.

I probably will. I haven't decided if maybe I want to swap back and forth between them every other touring/trip, or only use the El Diablo when on touring/trips (which is what I am leaning towards, it's going to be hard to want to tour on the Evo when the Diablo has cruise control and music). Around town, I am going to swap back and forth every day between them, for sure. It's definitely not going to be a situation where the Evo is only around-town and the Diablo is only for trips.Congrats!
