New member from down under

Hi, new member from SE QLD Australia here. Picked up my new black beastie today. First new bike in 10 years and loving it. Light, agile and everything l wanted. Question, it might be because it’s new but idle even when warm sits at 1500ish rpm. Is that normal ? Gonna leave it mostly stock but will add flyscreen, lift bobbins, rim stickers and probably Mustard bike rear guard eliminator. Cheers all 😁

Hi magoo and welcome. I live in Brisbane, southside. There is another SEQ bloke too who lives northside somewhere -"Roadsider". We did correspond about having a ride together over Mt. Glorious but I am so slack I have not been in touch with him. I have a couple of Royal Enfields as well as the 790 so most organised rides are with the RE folks - that's my excuse I guess. Cheers,

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...
