I'd love to oblige you guys, but neither one of our digital cameras or our digital camcorder will pick up the sound good enough for me to even post it. It's weird cuz our camcorder does a great job of picking up sounds @ our grandkid's sports & school functions...

Jon, where did you buy your Scorpion exhaust? I would like to get a little more growl out of my TEX, sounds a bit too sewing machine like at low RPM.

Indysuperbikes.com http://www.indysuperbike.com/ They didn't have them listed on their site yet, but can get them. I believe the guy I spoke with there is David. It cost me $515 delivered...

I ordered a Trident stainless can for mine. I've owned on before, decent quality, sound and price. $320 US plus shipping from UK.

Anyone had their seat cable come off? I wanted to lock my helmet up this weekend and couldn't get the seat off. After i got home from camping Sunday and unloaded the bike,i found that the cable had somehow worked itself of the latch.

I got my Granddaughter to record a video for me... Here it is on Youtube. It actually sounds much deeper in person.

Absolutely SICK looking, I noticed they included an inventory list, has anyone actually taken the time to add them up?

Also, how do those tires perform on the roads and how's their longevity?

You notice that the swing arm skid plate that they made special notice of, isnt on there??

And everything is just an aftermarket version of the factory stuff. Crash bars, skid plate, aux lights, taller screen, luggage, etc.

Back to the top!

Just over week ago did 900 mi trip down to NC to suprise my sister and niece for her birthday. By far my longest road trip. Might look into a little better windshield for extended road trips. Just a touch of buffeting. It was starting to get a little windy too though so that didnt help. Little sore after I got off the bike. I could see it being a problem if I was riding a couple days straight like that, But then again could be just something to get used to just like being in the saddle for that long. Found I do usually have around half a gallon left when the miles to empty indicator runs out.

NONE of my waterproof clothing stayed dry. Even found I had a small pinhole in the crotch of my heavy pvc rain bibs. Didnt help the temp dropped 30 DEGREES within an hour of leaving my sisters. My 7 hour ride home turned into a 10.5 hr quest to not die of hypothermia and get home before the hurricane hit. That was absolute hell. Tires did great in the rain though. Plenty of times I was still running 75 ish when the road was dryer.

Anyone on the forum with a grey launch edition around the Hickory/statesville NC area? We were on the way to the zoo and saw one going the opposite way(40 east maybe?) riding with another guy. Even my bro in law noticed it was the same bike as mine, lol. Would have been sat the 27th.

Also, anyone ELSE rocking one of these yet??
