I just got the latest issue of Cafe Racer Magazine yesterday.  They have a multi-page review of the Continental.  In short, they liked it :)

It looks like one great motorcycle.

I like it a lot. It is nice to have a little extra horsepower about! And the bike handles very nicely. It's really not as comfortable as the Enfield was, but it'll get there quicker, so maybe I won't notice! It broke a spark plug cap, but that's the only problem that has cropped up.
It's got 6200 miles on it now, so it is definitely getting ridden. Not quite Bullet mileage, but I guess one has to pay for horsepower. It's averaged about 52.6 mpg since I got it.
Yeah, I like it!
