Hi all! Just got my 2019 790 duke today! My second bike, got it after 6 months with crf250l (which is an awesome beginners bike btw). Was practicing on a parking lot today to get a feeling for slow maneuvers since siting position and amount of power is quite different from a 250cc dual sport :D

Thank you, guys! Really exited to be here, was reading it here a lot before getting the bike, really helped me to make a choice!

I will caution patience. I went from a 250 to an 850 back in the early '80's. With hindsight it was a BIG jump. imo the 790D is pretty much the perfect road bike though.
For a week or two - stick it in RAIN mode. It'll make the transition less abrupt.
