I'm surprised that exhaust hasn't been replaced yet! Which one you going with Sean?

I'm hoping this new BMW is a bit stronger in the midrange compared to the Tuono. Moving out to the burbs soon so I need to get something more street worthy.
That '08 of yours WAS broken in proper, and tuned on the dyno, too Even stock, though, the CBR's are by far the most potent down low/mid.

I rode the '08 CBR at GSS, then rode an '08 ZX10 at GSS... it was like the difference between a 2-stroke and a 4!

Great report Morvegil. Thanks for sharing. I love reading your bike evaluations like the one you did of the Nightrod at the 1130cc forum.

Great looking bike. Ride Safe.
