No, it's the one that has been sitting at Wild West for a few months. They had it marked down to 15,999 so I snatched it up this weekend.

Oh man, the ride home from Katy via 359/362 was sweet, just cruising along, well below 6500 rpm, at one point I noticed my buddy wasn't behind me anymore, I didn't even realize I had been doing double the speed limit for a pretty long time.

540 miles to go for this break in.

None. The speedometer is all of the wind protection it has.
