So here's my new street/track bike
picked it up today, Paperstreet and Clopstyle met me out there, very cool of both of you 8)
got a little riding in today with clopstyle and spent some time learning the characteristics of this beast.
i can tell you this much, she's a fast one, in a little quick burst on 422 i hit 138 in 4th before creeping up to the cars
...watch out summit main!

Marco, that's great! I can't wait to see it in person.

If I wasn't down in Media that morning I would have joined you up at Martins too.

Enjoy!

thanks everyone, cant wait to learn more about it. its not better than my duc, just different. the duc has a great low end pull that cannot be matched, but the linear pull at 5500 rpms on this thing is insane!

Congrats! Still looks brand new ~ almost too nice for the track!

I bet those headlights do a better job than the Duc. (Then again a lit cigarette does about as good as the Duc)
;D

well, had it out again today for a bit!
i love this bike so far, i can't wait to get it on the track
its very fast, much faster than my monster, and pulls real hard through the entire rev range.
i have to say its not a hooligan bike though, i mean its fast, agile and i love it for what it is, but it aint no monster!
for the track and high speed rides I'll be on this for sure, but for around town and group rides, i'll most likely still be on the Duc!
Its like having the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde of bikes, one each

Hell yeah, lets make that thread, it could be interesting!
Yeah, i like red for the track bikes, it just looks faster, and I could use the help
spent an hour or so pricing out a new penske rear shock, new rearsets, new clip-ons, new track skins and a bunch of other bits and damn its gonna be pricey! but it'll be worth it
i think when i get the skins painted i'm going to go with a waving italian flag on red with factory stickers, it should look pretty nice
