yeah so far i cant say anything bad. pricing on parts is either on par or slightly more than some websites but im ok with it, because the service makes up for it.

no, i was actually already decided that when i was going to upgrade from the monster it would be a streetfighter. after doing some reading and that fateful day of casually walking into HSBK, it turned out the Tuono won.

hahah, yeah i think im ready bro! im not a reckless rider and you know first hand i am not afraid, ashamed, or embarrassed to go slower than the normal biker. plus, for the first 600 miles i have to shift below 6k anyway. also the bike has 3 maps and im running the map that cuts max power by 25% lol. hopefully i'll see you soon bro! ive been meaning to PM you about the last SMR route.. im trying to do it myself for practice and cant figure out where to go... lol.
