I think that in short order, you will also learn to love the shaft drive and fuel injection.  I know that after only a few 1Ks on the Uly, there is no way I could go back to carbs or a chain drive.

The clutchless shifting sounds intriguing.  FWIW, I don't think you need to be worried with any "first year" problems.  I think that with today's level of engineering and testing amongst the big manufacturers, this is largely a myth.  Take the '95 GPZs, for example.  :-)
