The F3 is one great looking bike, I love the white. I went to check out an AR at a local dealer and he had an F3 in my size and I was tempted. The graphics and quality of the finish just seems more upscale on the 2011’s. Got to take it for a ride, very stiff, better than my F3, Z, and a touch stiffer than my old SuperSix. It does loose to the SuperSix in the comfort department though. Not as bad as my friends F1 Sprint mind you, but not quite the same of comfort and stiffness as the old F’s. For the price though I don’t think you can beat the stiffness/weight of this thing. The AR is still noticeably faster though, it does not feel quite as responsive or agile, but once up the speed you can cruise in the upper 20’s like nothing, whereas the F feels like its pulling you back, which is to be expected as its not really aero at all.
