This!

I just got back on another naked 10R after a year of riding faired bikes only. What a huge addition to my braking to have that sail effect.

I enjoy the visceral experience using myself as an air-brake.

Very nice.

Im waiting for owner reviews, seeing what Nels can do with the software and the blue color offered in Europe before i think of getting rid of my FZ-09.

The blue would be cool, but I'm thinking you might be waiting awhile, considering how the entire FZ line moved to the same unified color schemes.

In theory Nels should be able to get into it pretty quick, I guess it depends on how different the ECU is from the R1 and what it will need beyond just a map.

I had a 690 Duke I thought would be a wheelie machine, but it wasn't. I rode the FZ09 and hated it. I took it up Old Belfair Highway and on one of the right hand sweepers there is a slight dip and the FZ wallowed like a wallowy thing and tried to throw me off the high side. It was a wheelie monster but it handles like an Ikea sofa.

Is the 07 better?

At ~120mph, it starts getting tough to hang on - and I have to start using the bars as leverage, which is never a good thing. Never done 150+ on a naked, but I'm not sure you could pay me to do so either.

The FZ-10 does a surprisingly good job of sending the wind around you. Compared to my FZ-09, it feels like the 10 has a full windscreen. I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out how they managed to make that work. Whatever, I like it.

You forgot to mention your love of its electronic cruise control.
