Re: Stupid questions
Welcome to the forum Eric. The smoke on startup is normal if she has been on the side stand. You can minimize it by holding the bike up after engine shut off to allow the oil to drain for a few seconds before you lean her over. Unlike the twins ALL these cyclinders point DOWN on the side stand.
The handling is only the low speed aspect as they changed the front rake a bit. Most important thing to remember is ALWAYS have your front wheel straight ahead when comming to that final stop. Turn the bars and she will be headed for the dirt.
Otherwise enjoy purusing the site and feel free to ask more questions (but learn to use the search feature, kind of like the "force") great wisdom lies in wait for the skilled searcher.
