I made that mistake with my first bike, that was a far, far cheaper bike and it still "hurt" quite a bit come time to fix the error.

I'm pretty sure I'll like the bike, in fact I'm sure I will but whether it will work for me in the real world is a different question.

Guys i am 6'5 or 6 and 300 lbs. I currently ride a 08 gsxr 1000. I rode the Strada today and didnt think it was cramped compared to gixxer. The ride in the seat could be further back. I was disappointed to read that the stock seat won't fit. I want to verify that. The big concern is that likely means the Corbin seat won't fit it.

I put a deposit down. Riding a 1200 explorer tomorrow then will make final decision.

Oh and off topic a little but the panniers will hold a full face helmet try yours first to validate as they are different sizes.

My techs went to work on sticky luggage today during 1st service. They filed the sharp edges off the teeth in the locking mechanism and added just a dab of graphite for lubrication. On/off is much better but still takes a slight pop on bottom to eject.

Oh, they also said bags, along with entire bike, is warrantied for 2 years. They made it sound very kosher to replace if they continue to stick.

Here’s the thing, warranty clams help push the OEM to make changes so by all means for the betterment of us all make your warranty clams.

Seems like the panniers are missing the lock and waterproof for full city riding.

Also seems like they could further shorten the brackets for the panniers to make the side profiles even slimmer.
