Thank you all for your welcoming messages and advices
Welcome to the group. I think that you will enjoy your bike. It has plenty of pick-up power to get out of congestion situations. Yes, the rear-view mirrors are no good. You may want to get a new muffler also so people can hear you. The factory muffler sounds like a sewing machine.
Yes I'll probably consider to get a better sound, not too noisy
But that's not for now. I think it's better to let the engine begins its life calm and quiet until the first service.
My first project will be for the security : I think I will soon add some Drl and hazard lights (lane is splitting is legal here). That may help to be seen, added to my hi-visibility helmet and jacket
Bonjour, Fabien! The larger wheels will give you a bit more stability than the scooter and the xg750 is considerably more powerful.
As Propnut notes, the mirror issue has been covered extensively. I use the H-D long stem mirrors which help, but would like to add the Krator mirror extensions that are popular with many members.
That's true for the stability thanks to the larger wheels, especially on a dry road. I drove this morning under the rain and I wasn't really confortable with the tires.
It's also more powerful, but above all it's really really more fun and pleasant even if I drive slower than I used to do with the scooter.
The krator seems to be a good (and cheap) solution, unfortunately I can't find a website that would ship to France.
I will look at the tribal or long stem from the HD genius even if they are much more expensive.
And I also have to buy new tools. Non metrics.
Welcome! I was in France last August. One of the fun things was stopping by the HD Dealership. The Street 750 is the perfect bike for your roads....nimble, quick, light, and great looking. I love mine. BTW....I adjusted the mirrors to get them up as high and wide as possible. They aren't perfect but I can get by. Enjoy your new bike!
Yes it's quite the perfect bike for where and how I'm gonna use it. I am great to read that you love yours.
