Nice to see that the factory can’t even put the fairing on correctly. :lol:
Great ride report. :)

What happened to the big sticker on the side of the tub in the early pics? What was it?

A very enjoyable introduction to you and your country. You sure did not start with small rides! The country is beautiful, and has a lot of good riding! Keep posting on the forum, we like to hear about other countries!
