All I can say is what a beautiful day, got home and got right on the bike...
B-mode, kinda crappy power delivery, and you get a handful of what feels like rev limiter when opening the throttle past about 1/2 way... so I rode around a bit like that, then on to A-mode, much snappier response that way...

All in all I feel like I'm on a much more solid, well planted bike, much smoother power delivery, smoother gearbox, more solid in a heavy crosswind...

I'm damn happy I'm on the Bking....

This thing has too much power everywhere, and its awesome... and a favorite review quote on the B-King:

Whatever the case, on a long and unobstructed freeway on-ramp, the B-King pulls like a pit bull that’s just realized Fifi the poodle is in heat, somewhere just upwind

I saw you guys northbound on VanDyke yesterday afternoon. I rode with Wally yesterday as well. He's a really nice kid and also really green when it comes to motorcycling but, you can see the passion in him, he loves it. He also, IMO purchased the perfect bike for him to cut his teeth on, allthough he will outgrow it by the end of the season.

Were you on the bike?
I spent 2 seasons on a 650, well worth it, I loved the 650.
The MSF class hes taking will help alot, it teaches you things you didnt know you didnt know.

Not at that time, I was in the drive through at the Mexican phone company:D. You're right with the MSF, nothing but good things.
