@bobsnicholson ...nice one bob, but don't forget the weather isn't always so accommodating...I know someone who works in Dubai and i'm often jealous of his 'sunny' posts on Facebook......but then again the roads look a bit boring.!

Unless you get "out of town" towards the mountains yes the roads are boring. Wide, straight and full of nutters.
Your mate will tell you go towards Fujeriah, Masafi, Kor Fakkan, Kalba through the mountain's etc then the roads are superb. Basically less than an hour out of Dubai.

Ask expert fellow riders about anything to do with setting up, fixing or improving your bike
Vibration through handlebars and tank

Singles always vibrate because it is a single piston moving up and down. Some manufacturers run a balance shaft to try and even out the vibration, some use lighter parts but there is a difference between normal vibration and abnormal and as I mentioned earlier the only way to tell is to start another bike of the same type and see if there is indeed a difference or could it be you as a new rider feeling something that was always present.
If the bike has only done 500 miles just check with a spanner that the engine bolts aren't loose , it's better to do it yourself that way on arrive at the service centre you can point to the bolts that need/needed attention. Loose exhaust bolts don't help either so check them.
Have fun

I wouldn't get that one, the weight of the bike on your back dragging you backwards is a killer especially when fell walking.

So I'm told.
