That exhaust system looks like a boiler. I wonder how long it will take to crunch it when it's ridden where most people ride.

The air scoops do it for me, why would you want to make those the predominant styling feature, they look like tw*ts hanging off each side

I love it! I can't wait to see one at the dealer. One of the print mags had a pretty good write-up on it this month (CW or MC). They said there was very little variation in the engine from the original; none of the de-tuning to get more low-end that you see in similar naked versions of the full on sportbikes. Apparently the pulley sizes are slightly different.

Fonzie, no trip to Florida? Darn, I might have laid out $150 for a ride and some of your photos! Sounds like a tough job for you, but somebody has to do it... Then again, Biketoberfest is just around the corner, maybe I can get a free ride at Daytona.

The real question is will Fonzie ever answer his email?

Likely a long damn time - as MOST people only ride from Bar to Bar, or down to Burger Shack, or the occasional Cruise Night at Sonic.

That, and "Ride to Work Day".
