    Hi Guys,

    I am not new in the forum, took me some time to read all the 105 pages and I enjoyed it and now I think I can contribute.

    I have a MM 2008 and I have riden it for 3000 miles now and I have done the Mtec conversion to add the HP2 Sport spoiler. Other than that bike is stock.

    I want to say that I really like this bike, My other bike is a K1200R and even they have same cc they are not comparable. Does anyone else have the same bike combo?

    Mike (from Houston TX)

    Good to hear, Jonas! I thought I'd heard after your engine incident you had sold yours. Maybe that was someone else. Either way, good to hear you're still part of the fold. Sorry for my error.

    marc, nice set up; but how do you do that. i mean first i see the mm on the left than he is on the right, the hp2e has red striping and suddenly white lining on the saddle. location and spot looks the same.
    have fun with these .:D

    Very cool, Marc, congratulations! If the economy wasn't so bad I'd be hunting for an E & and S to keep my MM company.

    the pics were not taken the same day, the second one was to illustrate Xenon setting on the HP2E :-)

    All simple :

    red striping was only tape put on MM saddle when I bought it ;
    then, I swaped the saddles between HP2E & MM ;
    after, I took off the red stripping etc :lol3

    I prefer the bikes with the swapped saddles, the blue 'top' of the one on the MM reminds the wheels colour :

    now, I'm looking for a Motosport saddle, so with 3 saddles, I will be able to change the look of the 2 bikes when I will be fed up of the settings :D

    Same location, yes, home sweet home

    Yes, getting the "trinity" would be a great pleasure :wink: but having ONE is also a great chance !!

    I'm missing one now but I keep hope for the future :lol3

    It was NakedRider who had his MM totalled, fortunately, he was not too badly damaged.
    BTW, I HATE you and your damn photos...!
