Gentlemen, I've just began to commute on one of these... ...and I would just like to state for the record - Holy. F***ing. S**t. This thing is so much faster than anything I have ever ridden, that I do not even have the words to describe it (guess I should have paid more attention in those poetry lessons in high school). Why didn't I hear about this bike in the past? It's amazing. I've owned and ridden lots of big, fast bikes but NOTHING like this, and it is bone stock. I have a feeling I'd better go down to the bank and open a rear-tire savings account. I mean, do the kids really need to go to college? It's pants-sh**ingly fast. I know there are faster things out there, but I am pretty sure at this moment, I do not want to ride them. This is clearly a motorcycle for the criminally insane. And people actually put parts on these to make them faster... WTF? Did I mention, it's reasonably comfy too? Posting this b/c there's little to no info on the forum about this bike, and I know I could go elsewhere, but I love this place. Anyone else have a 12R? Tell me all about it. Except performance mods. I'm not crazy!
