My primary interest yesterday was taking demo rides on a Vstorm 650 and a FJ-09. The Vstorm was peppier than a NC and the seat was comfortable, but no more room between the seat and foot pegs and the riding position was very straight up. The FJ was really nice: no knee or hip cramps, ok seat, not bad wind screen, very zippy, nice suspension and brakes. The only real issue is the grips get very buzzy above 4,000 RPM, and even in top gear that's just over 60 MPH. I rode around on some of the back roads here in Dublin and the NC is much smoother in the 70-75 MPH range. Disappointing; I was really looking forward to a SPORT tourer.
