    I'm not going to pretend like I was not riding like a bit of an asshat lol...... But don't sell your self short Lunatic.... at the annual ADK Buell ride in Lake George, NY, there is a dude with a Uly who is around the 60 mark and he routinely leaves us all in the dust when we hit the twisties..... it's not even close no matter how hard I try.

    Yeah, when ?

    John, your not used to riding in traffic like we have in NYC and most of NJ now, being g born and raised in NYC and being that my first vehicle was a motorcycle I am used to it and ride pretty much the same way. What people can't understand is the trick is to stay moving ahead of the cagers, reason being is that to a certain amount one can control what's going on in front but can't what's going on behind them.

    Though I said that Grego drives a little crazier than me I was really jesting and I pretty much drive the same or worse than he, believe me it's actually safer riding that way or at least to me it is.

    I'm not much of a hooligan anymore but I lived in Germany in the '80s. Had a Honda Sabre. Pretty easily 160 on the autobahn. There was a video then by this - I think - black prince or black knight. Maybe a Frenchman. He claimed the record time around the peripherique (the Paris beltway). He really was a hooligan. I rode the Sabre to Le Mans a few times and tried the hooligan bit on the peripherique. It was a blast. And I completely agree with njloco. Ride like you mean it. I rode a k1 to work for ten years, almost every day except packed snow and ice. Always always kept the rubber side down. Yes, you are in better control going faster than the cagers. The black knight complaint: When cars don't use their blinkers when changing lanes. )

    It wasn't today but last Saturday I cleaned her up, and rode from Newnan GA, to Columbus GA, to Opelika AL, and back to Newnan...... Good ride, great enjoyable wind and sun burn!

    I like those R9T's! Theres a couple in my riding group. Similar specs to an XB (110hp/86lb/ft) with a strangely high 489lb weight?
    Another super sexy bike I'm too damn big for though It's amazing what they can do, I'm surprised at how fast they are.

    I cleaned up my poor wheels the other day. I found out that they were actually gold and not brake dust gray.

    I then let out about 2lbs per tire to set them to 34/36 and then proceeded to remind myself how much I love Torque.
