    That's one of my favorite playgrounds, Sete Cidades ( Seven Citys ). It's a lagoon in the middle of a vulcano.:deal

    Know what you mean about the lights. The Strom lights are fugly but affective!

    About the linked brakes. You do know that if you touch the rear first it unlinks the system.

    ayup on the rear brake first.

    With the rear linked on hard braking and downshifts it keeps locking and skipping the rear no matter how hard or agressive I rev match. I'd rather not spend my (limited) attention at this time touching the rear first.

    The button to cycle off TC is going to wear out and will be replaced by YES in a year or so.:lol3

    I have to say, mine does the skippy thing too but I just accept it, have got used to it and ignore it.

    As for the TCS, when I am pushing hard uphill in the twistys, its on all the time keeping me alive. Personally, I just love it. But that just me I suppose. :D

    ABS and TC2, I like a bit of sideways :D

    The K60's on hard pack and pea gravel certainly don't like staying in a straight line at the rear. Glad the front is different.

    Sort of a win win there..:deal

    Nicely set up bike!

    I was curious about the exhaust though. I see the Arrow in the first pic and the Yosh in the second. How do they compare? I was planning on getting the Arrow in a few months (when I recover from Christmas:lol3), but didn't realize they had finished the Yosh pipe yet. Does the Yosh point the exhaust down or straight at the turn signal?

    EDIT: Never mind. I found your post on the Tenere site. Thanks for being the guinea pig!

    Very nice Donkezz. Excellent accessories and I notice a little left over mud so this is no street queen. But be warned post a pic of a black bike on Advrider and someone will be along in a minute to call you a fag.:lol3
