    IMO this is the type of recipe many people want that makers are not delivering.

    Thanks 11motos. Thats the reason i build this bike, because i dont see that any of the moto-manufacturers are going to build a bike in the 400 to 700cc for a while and life is too short to wait.

    Well i got a chance to take it for a 90km ride today OH MY GOD! if Honda ever builds a bike like this they will sell alot of them.The power is grait i did not noticed it to be any heavier than before but i have not weight it yet. It handles great on the road ands fills nimble flicking it around. I love it. 20180413_133438.jpg 20180413_133428.jpg 20180413_133414.jpg

    Where's the snow?
    I still can't get out of the driveway!

    Bike looks great, very nice job.
    A few of you guys should get together and start banging these out one after the other.

    It's the CG being a little lower that has a lot to do with the way it corners.
    I think mine corners better now than it did when it was a 250.
