I've been wanting to go to one of their motorcycle shows. I'll definitely be checking that out.

I don't know. She has small hands so its literally the distance between the handlebar and the level that's a bit of a reach.

Thoughts?

Also - I'm assuming that any of those 3 links for lowering links will be ok?

Jason,
They do make adjustable ones. Cant think off the top of my head who, but I know they are out there.

Hey Schick don't be so lazy.....Google is your friend
Adjustable Levers are the way to go. Hade similar problem with Yamaha Clutch lever.
Installed Pazzo levers, fine pieces of machined Aluminum
Also have ASV levers on Hyper very nice also & have a finer adjustment.
There is also CRG levers. They look just as nice.
They are expensive but, the good thing with all these is you can always swap the levers onto other bikes & just buy the new pivots.
Would call any one of them, I'm sure they could help you out. I've dealt with ASV direct & very helpful
Good Luck!

Went to see a B17 Today

















Showers and thunderstorms were forecast, but the weather held out. I'm going to save my money and take a ride next time.

Panigale!!

Well I had some free time today............so I had a date with an Italian Supermodel




If you haven't ridden one yet do yourself a favor & do
This bike has CHARACTER & ABSOLUTELY RIPS!!

This was the base model; No ABS & No Electronic Ohlins, but still very impressive.

Riding position: Pretty good. Better than my 999. The seat is hard & you feel everything the bike is doing but it never bothered me in the 40 mi. ride I took. You sit higher & it feels like a 600.
The shock on left side you never notice when riding yet @ stop it's there.

Engine: likes to rev, 7-11,000 RPM is it's sweet spot. When the tach goes on through 7,000.......hang on!!! The bike becomes somewhat violent, (front end in air) making speed rapidly & triple digits are obtained easily

Noise: Bike is loud! Exhaust sounds nice, although it's weird to feel it blowing on your feet @ a stop
Also alot of mechanical noise even though it's a wet slipper clutch.
Then there's the intake honk also

Suspension: Firm, the bike feels soild & planted. Yet it changes side to side quickly & feels very light.

Brakes: the always exceptional one finger Brembos.

Electronics:
First the dash is really nice, makes some smart phones look cheap
Sorry picture doesn't do it justice though


3 Power modes. Race is full on! where I spent 95% of my ride. The factory pre-set setting were pretty good
Sport: tones the engine down, making it hit not as hard
Wet: drops the engine down to 120HP & the bike still has more power than most will ever use.

Traction Control: Is much better than on the Multi. Never really noticed it in the race pre-setting. The front wheel was @ 2 feet & still climbing, only sign was the yellow light flashing. NICE

Quickshifter: was GREAT also. Keep the throttle pinned & just nudge the shifter.......NEEEEXT! Sometimes it felt maybe a little to easy to change gears, as just breathing on it would change gears.

Engine Braking: really didn't get to feel its effects that much as I wasn't really pushing it into the corners. On the track I'm sure it would help.

Would I buy one.......SURE! but something will have to go
Well I hope I didn't ruin for you all
Go ride one!! Oh & I got to pop her 500 mile cherry

There's always some interesting stuff around Eurosports
This was @ the Quad shop next door




GREAT pix FyrFytr, looks like you had a good time today

Nice Redpower
I like the way you returned it with the fuel light on.
Now you rode both the Pengali and the BMW s1000rr. It seems like the Ducati is better

Well I do know it will go at least 15 miles with the light on
When I stopped to take a pic of the bike in the wild, the light had just come on
While stopped I took one of the dash too

The BMW is faster & refined, but basically is a Japanese knock-off to me.
The only thing that differentiates it from them is the asymetrical bodywork.
In my opinion.....The Ducati has soul. Besides I am kind of biased
You could never use the full potential of any of these bikes on the street
But who cares as this is an ADVenture site


Attn: The Gent, you have a pm. I found a sharper pencil

It was a good day, despite unsuccessfully trying to dodge the thundershowers on the way back.

Our rides - Ninja 250, F650GS, Thruxton:


Now the more interesting stuff:




















































Thanks for the heads-up on that one RedPower, keep them coming!

The Greeves "Leading Link"

Was the cats ass in late 60's early 70's enduro's, along with the Puchs and Husky's. My dad had one. Very cool bike Jimmy and nice shot. Notice the "Leading Link". Not sure it did much, but my dad thought so at the time
