that was part of the prob. it had raising links in the rear and then i put a 190/55 so i was 3-4" off the ground on either leg. plus it was HEAVY.......

wasn't me. to much attention

and good lord that bike was fast, i felt you had to be going fast to enjoy it because of its heft.


i had fun w. it, sold it for what i paid, so i got out good w/ it.

had it 2 yrs.

a big thing was, i had started a vanpool and was driving that everyday then kids on weekends, so no time to even commute w/ it. well vanpool got kicked out of parking lot, so i got rid of the vanpool. so i'm back to riding everyday. i wanted my own bike vs my wife's bike too. lol

That is nice. I haven't seen the 10 factories before. Looks much nicer than that lion's head on tank they used to have. I miss my Tuono. I would like to get one of the V4 ones when they come out but I have a feeling I will be waiting a long time for that.

Nice! Sucks they don't have the silver and white one. That is the color I liked although the Gen 2 Tuonos have such cool color schemes it makes the new one look kind of bland. AF1 will probably have a demo. I would like to ride one and see what the V4 feels like. I don't like I4s for street bikes so I'm wondering how much it feels like one. If it doesn't have much grunt down low I may just try to find another Gen 2 Tuono or maybe a Dorsoduro 1200. There may be some good deals on leftover Dorsoduro 1200s next year. I will have to REALLY like the new T to pass up the deals on leftovers.

I'm on my second RSV. Great bikes. Doesn't have the power to keep up with higher displacement twins or the latest I4 litres, but on the street who cares?
