Great to hear there's no vibration because it can take a toll on you on long rides, and it's cheap!! Suspension is not the best, but maybe some added padding in the seat would help with any butt pains.

I think he was referring to the fact that he was getting pounded a bit on that rough road because of the stiffer suspension. One of the main rider complaints with the old N300 was that the suspension was too mushy, which is fine for soaking up every small bump in the road but when the pace picks up it just makes the bike wallow and pogo through the bends. Stiffer, sporty suspension always has the trade off of less comfort on rough surfaces.
Ari Henning reckons the suspension is a big improvement on the old model, but then he does like to ride fast! :D
