This bike is on my radar.

Not enough twisty roads around here for it, but the magic suspension and motor are appealing. Plus the cruise makes it seem much more tourable. I've got an RT now, and I want a more visceral experience.

Just did mine this weekend. The clutch lever is not the same. I was able to modify it to get it to work.

Damn, I ordered a set of Pazzos today and asked them several times if they were absolutely sure the RR were the same to which they said they were positive.

I really like your Wunderlick tank bag. Does it not interfere with your bars?

Not at all. What interferes is that there is not enough travel between the stops. The slow speed turning radius is horrendous.

OMG!!! Just got in from 180 miles of unbelievable smile miles. I don't know if I will ever jump on my Tuono again. Handles like a dream, rides fantastic but got to get a gel seat. I wanted to keep playing on it and to knock off more beak in miles as this under 7K is very hard to make myself do. But I came home because I was about to hit 4+ hours on an erection that started the minute I pulled of the driveway.
Very happy with my choice!

Can you post a closeup of the bar-end mirror? I would like to see how they are installed....I have some CRGs I might try using.

Thanks!

Got something for the bike this afternoon. It's first performance award.



Trooper was very nice.

69 in a 55. I had just come out of the mountains and was cruising at a good clip between Longmont and Loveland. It was on US 287 right after it drops to 55 from 65 just as you come into Loveland.
