Nice you mention the kickstand.
We layed the bike down to put some debris under the rear wheel. Once the bike was standing and I tried to fire it with no success, I found the kickstand opened, trapped in the mud.

Hope you understand my english...

English was/is perfect. WAY better than my Italian.

Thanks for the update and I feel your pain. Been there done that, problem was, I was alone.
That SUCKED.

Can't wait for summer!
No,, the novelty never wears off,, I've been riding a bike for 23 years now,, and I've been doing that since I found out I could.. I even went thru tires in my 68 sedan de ville.... Think of it as an investment in satisfaction..

And I cant wait for summer either,, Bike looks good,, and your buddy's LC4 does too..

Not a chance, if you're getting more than a grand out of those 908's you're doing it all wrong.

Me likey!!!

Wonder why?

Although, looking at yours, it's easier to view, mine looks like he's in jail or something hiding behind the Hepco barZ.

I totally agree, this is a SUPER bike. I just wish I could put it through it's paces like many on this site.



As for the orange bike with the busted front fender due to massive mud injestion, that is the sole reason why I went with this instead.
