Thoroughly enjoying my new 2013 Thruxton; I guess you need to use some photobucket type site to post pix? Asks me for the url; I only have some pix that I saved on my computer.
Does anyone know of aftermarket short front fenders? I deleted rear fender, now I sort of am thinking that the front should be shorter.
Oh, I'm 5'11", 160 lbs and love the fit so far.
Anyone coming from anything remotely resembling a sporty bike will notice that this is a very lazy bike in its power delivery.
Its underpowered in the sense that overtakes need to be planned more carefully now as the power isnt available instantly.
In the day-to-day real world, the power is fine. It makes useable torque down low and is faster than probably 99% of the cars you have to deal with on your commute. It should run mid-13s in a 1/4 mile and, from what I've read (sorry, looking for a source to cite), you can knock a second off with pipes and air box/filter mods.
Think of it this way it's a "classic 60's platform and would have been considered rocketship if it was actually available back then. It would have been about even with the Norton Comando 750 and 850 and would also have compared well to a stock early/mid 70 CB750.
