The R75/5 is still waiting to go into the shop for a new clutch (there wasn't much left of the clutch when I bought it), and the R100 doesn't have any gas in it (and is buried under stuff in the garage; I should really start it up and make sure it's still running well).
So... I've been taking light rail in to work, which is good most days. Today, however, I have a visit to my optometrist scheduled, and transit out there is a pain.
Hence, I'm borrowing K's R1150R for the day.
It's an interesting ride.
The pegs leave me folded up pretty much, so I don't think I could take too long of a ride on it; my legs would give out.
The servo-assisted brakes are really cool; they're actually relatively subtle but if you grab a big handful you stop.
The lack of dive in the front end isn't as disturbing as I expected.
It's got plenty of power and is very smooth for a big twin, but it does get a nasty vibe in the footpegs around 5k.
Transmission is very smooth and very positive-feeling, but I'l admit that I've become accustomed to how the shifter on the K locks if you try to shift below 1 or above 5.
Switchgear is yet again different than previous models. I think I like the non-standard gear on the K better; it's less of a stretch for me.
It's got a surprising amount in common with the handling of my /5. A lot less flex and springiness, mind you, but still very light (feeling, I know it's not really that light, but it's a lot lighter than the K) and ready to corner quickly.
