Thanks for your comments everyone, much appreciated. Honda actually market this bike as a "Super Sports" bike, which it most definitely isn't in my opinion. I think it's a brilliant little all round motorcycle though, which you can do anything on, on the road, apart from touring two up. It's perfect for what I need, and I wouldn't want it to be any different. It's just not a "Super Sports" bike, as far as I'm concerned, which is a good thing, on the road.
