Got a few photos on a recent day ride that turned out good:


Ninja Shadow Perspective - Front


Ninja Shadow Perspective


Ninja Shadow Perspective - Closeup



Forestry Motorcycle Contemplation

Bunch more on one of my Flickr sets, if anyone is interested in looking.

I'm really digging the Angel ST tires and the 190/55 profile vice the 190/50s. I've gotten the Angel's from edge to edge without any fanfare, though I don't track or push the N1K that hard on the street. About the only thing I have left to really do is fab up some mounting points for the Givi sidecase racks to attach to the Muzzi fender eliminator.

I am digging those shots, especially the last two! Have any wallpaper (1080p) versions you care to share?

Thanks guys for the birthday wishes. The road is called Firetower Road in central Alabama. It's a nice curvy narrow countryside road with hairpins . I can send you the full high resolution pics if you shoot me your email.

Here's a full 360 degree panoramic http://photosynth.net/view/db915368-...4-68f5cd3a19d2

Mini Air Compressor that fits on the N1K

On my other bikes I've carried a mini air compressor for road side flat repair but they were all too large to fit anywhere on the N1K. I just happened to be in Lowes today farting around and ran across this little unit the works out perfect. I think it was about $14.

Slime Tire Top Off Air Compressor - Slime Part #40020



Since I carry a toolkit under the rear seat I had to look somewhere else to store it and found that it fits dang near perfect under the front seat in the empty space behind the battery.





I cut the power cord to the compressor to length so it reaches from the Powerlet socket I installed on the passenger rearset to the front wheel with about 6" extra slack. I removed the cigar plug and connected a Powerlet plug in it's place.

Next I needed to figure out a way to hold the compressor down so it wouldn't be flopping around under the seat. I used a Dremel tool and 1/8" drill bit to make a small hole in the lip of the battery tray and ran a Zip-tie through the hole.



I used a velcro strap as the hold down. I fastened the plastic "buckle" of the velcro strap to the battery tray with the zip-tie in the above pic.



Then I used 2 zip-ties in the hole between the seat bolt holes to make a loop to run the loose end of the velcro strap through.



I put a shop rag under the compressor and one on top of it to keep it cushioned and so the strap would hold it a little tighter in place. Plus, I figure if I am dealing with flat repair beside the road, I'll need a rag to wipe my hands / things off anyway so it worked out nice.

I bundled the power cable up and stuck the Powerlet plug down beside the battery.



I have a 6mm hex wrench in the toolkit to remove the seat if needed to get to the compressor. The toolkit also contains a tire plug kit.

It depends on your definition of fast. If your definition is a B-King, then no it isn't. But barring most anything other than a liter-bike super-sport, or a Busa-like hypersport, yeah its fast.

It is the fastest bike I have owned, would leave my 2008 Honda CBR600RR for dead, and that is a powerful 600. My Griso 8V is a powerful bike, but the by the time it is up to speed, the N1K is in the next zip code.

I also know it will leave a Speed Triple as well.

But the best thing is how it has plenty of power from idle and doesn't let up til the redline.
