Hello from Sunny central Florida, USA. I too am just under 50 and have ridden many bikes over the years. I am currently riding a 1990 CBR1000F. My new 2014 F6C will be dilvered in a bout 10 days or so. Can't wait to ride. I am sure it will be awesome. All the reviews are pretty great on these. These bikes seem to be selling like crazy over here in the states. But, with that being said, I have only ever seen one other one on the road since they came out. And then I saw it twice and was curious enough to go down the same youtube road as you. Then I rode it.....the rest is history. I am really looking forward to riding a bike you don't see everyday.
