Miss My 09, the crossplanes do sound epic. I put a straight pipe on mine, musical....

Seems like the Duke will suit me well. Don't get me wrong, I'd love more horsepower, but with my past experiences my big sport bikes become garage queens.

A Super Duke 1290 or SD 990 would be amazeballs, or even a CB1000R but a bit rich for my blood at the moment. We'll see how next year's pay works out. I'm always open to new bikes. The 690 fits in the playful and enough power bracket that I really don't need another bike...but more bikes are always better.

Anyone have any experience with the Super Duke 990R? I want to get some miles under my belt on the Duke to figure out if I'd even want a literbike+ naked bike. I've been having wrist problems, plus my back surgery and I just find it harder to deal with the sportbike sitting position these days.

I have a 1290 superduke, the riding position is excellent for the wrists and back, I'm sure the 990 is going to be similiar. I rode super sports for a looong time and I grew tired of their riding position.

Welcome to 2016! I've been vlogging a lot because of recent events causing me to start commuting to work on my bike. Weather stories, getting lost in the fog. Needing energy drinks and fighting with a backpack. Let me know your worst weather stories, and how many people here commute mostly on a bike?

Good to see you back vlogging more Chix.
I got caught in the rain tonight. Wasn't heavy rain, but it made a not-so-warm ride more not-so-warm lol.

How's the back?

Back is doing well, thanks. Rain sucks all in all. I hate the not being able to see part
Today was gorgeous, even though it was in the 30s when I left for work this morning I had a great ride. Was almost too warm on the ride home.

What are people using for a mic? I like mine (ATR 3350), but the endless cord is annoying. Bought a dead cat to put on it to help with the wind noise. That's about the only thing I'm fighting with now since I like my placement.

I don't have a mic and that's y I don't talk in most of my videos (I let my actions speak for me).... But that will change sometime this month when I'll be picking up a battery powered mic for the gopro4 and a sena to dual vlog with others
