    Well I'm adding my V7 850 Special in blue to the list.
    VIN ZGUKZUB01MM000197 purchased 8/6/21

    I'm liking the bike and it seems to be breaking in nicely, only about 300 miles so far.

    I'm definitely looking forward to some suspension upgrades and a remap to clean things up. I'm sure there will be some other things also, probably a center stand and tail rack, mostly likely heated grips also. I want to see about a seat with less cutdown in the front.

    I think the flyscreen is a Dart Piranha. Looks like it anyway, but I really don't know. I bought the bike used with 4278 miles at Aces Motorcycles in Ft. Collins CO.

    Edit - Dart Marlin!

    412E82EE-57F7-48E6-AA63-26EDC8D6A572.jpeg I figured out “What wore out my back tire !”
    The addictive sound of aggressive downshifts ?
    So it’s Todd’s *Fault* for making it sound So Dam Good :rock:

    Out for a spin to Break the new tire In

    I could be doing both if I didn't have a cracked rim in the front right now

    Made it 20 miles and hit a wall of rain. New tire will have to wait.

    So I’m out for an evening ride, standing up on the pegs getting some extra air flow, it’s over 90 here !
    A older guy on a wide glide goes by on my left ... we’re going the same way, first light i hang back, next light he picks a lane I pull up along side , we nod.

    Next light same thing, third light he’s looking over and says “ Electric ?”
    I pop the rev’s , he looks a bit startled and embarrassed “Oh ! That’s the cylinder ! “
    “ It’s that way” he makes a transverse V motion with his hands...

    Not that many in town I say,
    “ Never seen one before” he responds
    I tell him they took a couple to Sturgis and everyone was asking how they switched the engine around like that, he laughs...

    Yes it does! I like it, it’s easy to see even in bright sunlight. Two complaints, the gear indicator often lags behind shifts, and they missed an opportunity to use the “eagle” as a digital gas gauge.

    Yes, the gear doesn’t update until you let out the clutch so it can calculate the gear based on speed and RPM.

    I trust the trip meter and your average fuel consumption numbers - Mpg / L/100km more that I would trust a gauge, they always lie about the second half tank...
