Happy to be a new member
New to bikes and the forum. I've been lurking for awhile now and I just have to say that I am extremely pleasantly surprised at the civility with which the members of this forum treat each other. I am used to the normal shenanigans that pervade most forums and expected this place to be full of the same better than thou attitude. I'm so glad that this place seems relatively free of that stuff!
Anyway, I got a 2008 650 about a month ago and have been loving every minute of it. It's has been so long since I have gone for a ride just for the sake of riding, but I find myself looking for excuses to hop on the bike and cruise nowadays. I'm definitely hooked.
I am really happy with the setup that I have right now, but I am thinking of changing the front sprocket to a 17 spoke to reduce my rpm's at high speed. I live in the country so most roads I frequent are 55-65mph areas. Anyone have any input on that idea?
