Re: Just a guess here, but....
Has anybody seen the torque curve for this ride? Is i a gradual buikd to 110, or very peaky?

It seems to drop off fairly quickly if there's 90HP about a 1K later, meaning it's already dropped 11ft-ibs. Or is that usual for a bike of this type?) At that rate, I'd think that would eliminate any top end power quick.

This from a guy who usually doesn't even look at the Pony count... Whatr're ya'll doin' to me?

Apologies for the typos, phone range and I clicked the wrong place...

A couple years ago, up here in NW Pa., I put in 200mi on a 39degree day in late February, out of sheer stubbornness. It was an experience I wonÂ’t soon forget, or ever need to have again. Seeing a frozen-over Lake Erie, from the seat of an SV650, wasnÂ’t worth the worry of what sex IÂ’d be when I got home.

Berry's awesome, but I prefer someone built like Marilyn Monroe. Long, slow rides call for a cruiser.

Since, moto-journalism is such a awful thing for anybody to do for a living; I'd never refer to the MT's previous shock-system as a Rat-Trap.

Sucks to be short!
There's nothing I like more, than picking up 600lbs of motorcyle at a light, because I need to slide off to touch the ground. I just love entertaining cage drivers.
