I was mulling it over the Thanksgiving vacation and my best friend said it best, "Who cares!!! You ain't keepin' it anyway!!!" And that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to have a mad, passionate fling with this thing for probably six or so months until the new BMW R1200S comes out or the KTM SuperDuke comes over. Picked it up yesterday, $15,000 out the door. They wanted $16 and some change but I told them that's all I am paying, and that I'll be spending my service money at their shop too instead of taking it elsewhere. The ride back home (80-miles) via a quickie run through Glendorra Mountain Ridge Road (one of the better known canyon roads in SoCal) confirmed my previous review: Intense bike that wears you out quickly with the buzziness and the abrupt throttling. Easy to flick at low speed, but at high speed, it requires a lot of body input in order to make directional changes. I commented this effect with a Ducati 999 rider and he said that his bike behaves the same way. Interesting... I was worn out by the time I get home but WITH THE BIGGEST GRINS EVAH!!!;f I'd probably lose my ass when I trade it in, but who cares!!! It would be an affair to be remembered. This bike will probably do the yeoman duty of bike night posing and quick zings around the malls ala Harley-style. The suspensions are very well damped, but I am not used to having to hang off a bike in order to make it corner well, so my canyon carvers will continue to be the Rockster and the Tuono.
