I'm surprised....from what I've read, I thought the engine breaking on this bike would be much more severe. I find it really easy to get used to, my EX500 was way more finicky upshifting.
LOVE this bike!!!!! Please stop raining!!!!!

I... Please stop raining!!!!!
Consider getting better rain gear and just go out and ride. ;D

It usually isn't that the day is a bad day to ride, but merely that the gear chosen was a bad choice for the weather you're out in.

And then there´s weather that just plain sucks. :)

BTW: In a bicycle newsgroup one guy responded to the canonical "there´s no bad weather, just incorrect gear" with "name the gear for 3 degrees celsius, drizzle/sleet and uphill". Being a year-round bicyclist, I could relate to that. *g*

Proper gear for that is an indoor trainer :p


Yup, get some waterproof gear for the motorcycle and just go.
