    Don't remind me.

    I was sitting on a Tuono that cost less than this about a month ago but I turned it down.

    I went back a few weeks ago to buy it and it was gone.

    2010 - Orange, still had the warranty for 6months. New tires, aftermarket exhaust. I think it was like $7,100.

    Talk about a kick in the ****.

    True, also... I once had a get off wearing lace up sneakers, and they flew off exposing both of my feet to rash and dirt. Ended up having to go to the doc for cleaning/antibiotic the next day. I would have been fine if I had been wearing even hiking boots or anything that laced up really tight.

    Nice bike. I'm really liking my TCX boots. Check them out.

    That's nice. Don't think it will stomp a hole in a V max though.

    In the twisties? Try keeping up. The vmax is literally more than twice the price of my bike too. And for what? .5 in the 1/4?

    Coming from a former 1000RR owner, that's a nice little machine.

    Enjoy it; be careful.

    Please take an MSF safety course. You're in Florida. You need it.

    Damn Euro, you're really pulling out all the stops to get that old bag in the sack.

    Proud of you.

    Depends on which VMax. The old or the new.

    I took one in July, but I'm trying to find a sportbike class focused on street riding.

    I'm not going to take this on the track, I don't care if I can turn at 160mph, I want to learn how to swerve quickly.

    Oddly enough, my Aprilia felt easier to control than this. I just used the handlebars to counterstear and I'd swerve easily.

    This, I have to use my whole body to lean. Its a little unnatural.

    I'll run that V-max with another vintage bike that was designed to do street fighting against it.

    Stop light to stop light never lost to a Vmax:wavey:

    Why do you hate your legs so much? Jeans will shred within two feet of sliding. Then it's just flesh. They don't call it road rash for nothing.

    Nice bike, btw.

    Look for Streetmasters, or total control. The Keith Code class is great if you like to race. I would bet you need your suspension setup for you. It is the single biggest improvement in handling IMO.
