A post from a stranger

Hey, guys!
Excuse me for not being a 950/990 owner... I'm a stranger posting in this thread , but have found this, thought it would be good to post it here...
Simple and logical as is, how many of us actually figured out this idea???? Cheers!

Nooooo!!! I think I'd throw up if that happened. Then I'd kill someone. Or maybe vice-versa. Either way it'd be bad.

BTW, I gotta say how surprised I am by the engine on this Dakar model. I've ridden older model 990's and I owned a 950, but this thing is a completely different animal. Having never ridden an "R" model, I didn't expect the new cam and mapping to make that much difference, but it does! Maybe not in outright power, but more in terms of power delivery. It revs so hard and has such an aggresive feel to it. It's pretty sweet, I must say!
