I just took my bike in for it's 6k service , and HOLY COW! Feels like they took away the pretty girl next door and gave me an international Supermodel! No kidding, about a mile out from the dealer I considered turning round and going back because I was sure they'd given me the wrong bike!
Second-gear rollon from closed throttle at walking-pace: Usually gonna land up feeling like a bucking bronco, right? Not now - a smooth, powerful WHOOOOOSH from just over 1,000 revs. Couldn't believe it the first time, so I did it again - and again. Same orgasmic response everytime! God, I didn't think it was possible but I've fallen in love with this bike all over again! Even holding her on part-throttle in the twisties in 3rd gear (between 60/70mph), which before felt like the engine was 'hunting' through the revs, now has her just sitting and feeling immensely competent.
Why am I sitting in front of a computer? I need to be out riding!!
PS: I asked, but couldn't get a straight answer out of the service rep as to which particular version of the software they'd loaded. Didn't seem to matter at the time - I hadn't ridden her yet! Oh, and they did something to the throttle-body as well, according to the job-sheet. All warranty work.
