    Greetings from sunny manchester

    Hello new owner here, traded a Tracer 900 in and had a new MT10 in black delivered on Thursday, so just getting to know the bike period has begun, put 100 miles on it on Friday, second bike this year i have had the task of running in, which i really find frustrating, but at the same time new bike feeling is a buzz .... I'm starting to understand how retail therapy works.

    ^ lol. Welcome to the forum. Good choice. Enjoy the 10. I found the MT-10 much easier and quicker to run in than my MT-09, due to its longer legs and ability to cover more ground with more fun and better chassis supension awesome engine etc. Etc.

    MT-09 a keen Terrier.
    MT-10 a graceful Leppard that can explode to sprint like lighting.

    Thanks for the replies, 250 miles done yesterday, suspension is so much better than the Tracer ..... the Tracer is more like tigger from winnie the pooh, bouncing allover the place. The main reason i decided to change was the suspension on the Tracer would cost around 1500 to 2000 to get right.

    ^ and bonus is whopper better engine and chassis. The 10 is 30 % better in all departments except fuel consumption, lol.
