Will PM you. Yeah the driveline lash(did not know about that) will take some getting used to. Will PM you on those to see what you have.

Wow what a change.
1-No more struggling to push past 90(seriously I did hit the ton on that guzzi)
2-Instantly drew attention (from the Popo). Old habits die hard so I did not give him any reason to follow me for too long.
3-a brit started randomly talking to me
4-got a reaction from significant other (note, buy them something first before bring home a new toy)
5-chain drive a bit different power delivery than the shaft drive, but I will get used to it
6-a bit more forward leaning (can be corrected with risers)
Can not wait to ride it now.
Thanks to a few people for their input.-Pachuco,Patrick, Zipdot


New year new bike, now you can up the pace a notch and ride all the way with us my friend.. can't wait to see it in person. Congratulations I like that you got blue!

Thanks all. I do think it is awesome. But here is some additional awesomeness. Just uncrated, prepped and rolled on the floor as I was leaving.
Lesson learned. Don't move taking a photo. Note brembos

Glen,

Congrats and enjoy...like others I think you found a winner. Please be safe with all that power. Those of us on the slow, but pretty tractors will wave as you fly past us.

Be safe, and yes Mr. Policeman is interested, very.
