I am leaving in a few minutes to go on a 12 hour ride to Decatur Alabama to pick up my new SVTC. I'm nervously excited but will miss the best machine I have ever owned...08 GoldWing. If the Yamaha is half as reliable it will be fantastic.
WAY TO GO DUDE!! CONGRATS!!
Did you get the proven “faster” color... RED?
Glad to see you went all the way and got the SVTC. I think the extras are worth the $2k difference.
Now regarding all the “FEATURES”. Understand that the manual on the Infotainment system ALONE is 118 PAGES!
Take the time before hitting the road to figure out radio and basic NAV functions. After that, PLAN on spending some time sitting on it in the garage just familiarizing yourself with how to scroll through the different menus.
I’m really excited for you!
Remember!! For your first 600 miles the RPM’s need to be limited to NO MORE THAN 2500 (per the manual). That’ll get you crusing at about 65mph.
Once you hit 1k miles you can bring it up to 3500 RPM.
ENJOY! ENJOY! ENJOY!
REMEMBER TO SHORT SHIFT!!!! Takes practice! All your real torque is down LOW and doesn’t need to be revved like other engines.
