What's shocking is that with modern engine management, how mild mannered around town bikes like this can be. Smooth idle, easy to pull away from a stoplight and cruising along at 30 mph without complaint. It's easy to forget you're on a 170+ hp beast capable of 180 mph and sub 3 second 0-60's. » 10/17/14 1:07am Friday 1:07am

To add to this post, please, please go to your local raceway. Many of them run on a shoestring budget and deal with a lot of crap to bring good racing to your neighborhood. For not much more than the price of a 2 hour movie you can instead watch (and smell and feel!) a full night of racing. » 10/06/14 10:30pm 10/06/14 10:30pm
