Brilliant, it would be great to know what you think as you've put so many miles on the first two. I'm especially interested in torque and gearing comparisons (I think the RS I tested was almost a year higher than my 2009 R at 70mph, which made cruising less frenetic, but I think it maybe hurt roll on a bit, but in hindsight I didn't do a very long test ride).

EDIT just read your other post and you already know the answer.

That's an amazingly impressive record - and even better to  hear the testament to the ST's longevity!  Thanks for sharing!  :028:
