You guys obviously haven't discovered a pre-engineered synergystic paradigm shift combining "just in time" parts availability with positive workflow matrix's resulting in workplace footprint reduction and enhanced customer product delivery

If I can't ride I'll buy Escalade and cruise in air conditioned comfort

I dunno Moke, the guys I chat with at the local mega-dealer say the thing has so many nanny controls and cutouts the thing is no fun at all. If you try to hooliganize it at all it bytch slaps you and cuts power.

The ECU from the Aprilia RSV Mille will plug right in according to the guys at a local shop I do business with. Gains about 10hp and cuts out the traction control and turns off the ABS. They've just started playing with it so there are some bugs to play with but it's pretty cool so far.

I rode with some VW based trike guys in Brazil. There were plenty of them, some looked pretty wild with horned ox skulls in the front and other appropriate acessories. But when you get stuck behind a truck on a narrow road there you are, going 60 km/h for the next 45 min. Fun factor = zero.

So, would you honor an insurance claim for somebody who'd swapped the ECU, crashed and burned, and killed innocent bystander Little Timmy Taylor, after they'd maliciously disabled the safety features of their Can Am Spyder? HAH!
