I followed one around Monterey for a while last year. Guy pulled a wheelie while rolling around at 40 mph...

I think I would like one down the road someday. It's like a V-Max (the older ones I love) that actually handles and does not have a hinge in the middle.

funny you should ask

last yr when i had the busa, the D handling was great
now that i have the T it doesn;t handle as well, lol. but it was still nice, ride was great.

but the power was awesome! not as linear as the busa but still freakin fast

they set the bikes up early w/ street mode, 100hp
i reset my enroute to "race" 162 lol

lead riders took off and left everybody, then i caught up to him

Just seen these bikes headed to crab river on my way to my folks house. They were right behind me waiting on a train. Was hoping to see um in action, but they were obviously going for a slow group cruise.

i started a convo w/ the lead rider and told him to head toward CRR, we muddled thru rosenberg and took a left away from the fun part of CRR.

hopefully he took my advice and changed the route.

Ducati really knows how to put on a class act.

RacerX, that is a nice shot of us finishing off the ride. Who took it?

This is what Yamaha should've built to replace the legendary gen1 V-MAX. That was the bike that I most wanted to get when I first got back to riding last year. Instead, Yamaha decided to follow the demographics "upscale" (err... the bathroom scale) and gave us a 1700cc 700lbs montrosity.
