Hey where did you get the FMF? Is it the Ti Q4? I was going to wait for the Akras but the FMF's look like it may be an option.

I'm really liking the bike. It's a little "raw" compared to my old R1200 GS but it sure is FUN!!! And what is really weird is that the touchy throttle that I experienced on the demo bike is not there on mine. The throttle is smooth, no jerky movements. I hope it stays that way!

How are you liking your bike?

8Superman,

I took those for you. That was a fun little road. I have to find more like that so I can get the bike a little dirtier.

Did you go all the way to the end? I just grabbed the little guy and turned around. That was the tricky part.

Yeah, I went to the end. It wasn't that much farther. I then rode down South River Road past Clarksburg and Locke. Pretty cool ride down there.

Here's mine 24 hours after buying it - decided to make a few modifications!



And with (some of) her stable-mates.




...and finally, on a day-out. My birthday as it happens.
