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.

It was 50 degrees here today and I took full advantage of it.
