Nice, I guess Ben got something good out of that Ducati deal!? Looks like it might be as loud as some Hardleys too?!

I loved my V4, and the sound it would make even at idle is so much better than my I4 in the high rpms. I just wish it had a bigger tank.

I'm 6'3", so there is a bit of a difference! :-)

I agree 100% on the sound. There is nothing like a V4 breathing through staintune pipes!

I know, I know - it is a little generic, but I don't want to take it slow...I want to go fast:



But I'd settle for a Panigale S, though. Or a Speed Triple R. Or about 20 other bikes...
