Picked up my 790 Duke a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with it. What an awesome bike.

This is my third bike, my last having been a Yamaha R3. What a step up!

Immediately put a set of Michelin Road 5's on it (was also considering S22's, but had those on the R3 and wanted to try something new) and I'm very impressed with them.

Thinking about adding some auxiliary lights and possibly changing the sprockets to shorten the gearing a bit.

Welcome fellow Kiwi. The Duke sure is a blast. I have found it suits our roads really well.

Hi from the Coromandel Peninsula Marty! Picked mine up in March last year and it still makes me laugh every time I ride it. Good move on the Road 5's - I just love mine. I had a great ride over the Rimutakas in February, even though the Wellington side was wet. Enjoy your ownership!
