    So, who's taken delivery of one? Keeping it a secret, eh?

    Or maybe it's now Christmas delivery.

    Seriously, I'm curious.

    Why would anyone come here just to have 99% of the people tell them the bike they just bought is too expensive, the company is going under, or the bike they now own is vaporware...

    Utah has lots of nice twisty roads (if you know where to look), and great scenery.

    he probably knows that....he's from SLC.

    I've ridden on every road in that video many times, and a few of them in the last few weeks.
    They couldn't have picked any more scenic paved two-lane for that video.

    Yeah.,.. I'm just flipping out that they've been running around out here and I wasn't able to meet up with them and maybe get a spin on one! The red is just gorgeous.

    Ahh. I seem to have discovered a new bias of mine. I guess I saw your comment as being negative because I have to ride for half a day to find a decent road. Western Kansas has about two interesting corners, and nether of them are on the same road. :lol3

    Very nice area for riding for sure! Someone mentioned they spent a lot of money on helicopter shots, could have been an RC Quad. Some of those shots were in one spot mostly.

    This weekend motus had an event planned. I'm going to try very hard to steal one for a few minutes and get a riding impression.

    All I really want to do is a quick gp8 and a wheelie, since I'll never own one.

    PS, vintage fest is this weekend. It kinda rocks to live in the 'ham.

    :)
