wet or dry, who cares... 999s eh? Great bike, I have one in LA still. They need some setting up but once sorted they are great. Trackday is always a good place for it?

the front end feels a bit light and the rear sets need sorting to fit my gimp knee . the bike is 10 time smoother than the SB8R Shocked , im not putting Down Bimotas but as the bike 5years younger it has 5 year more tech and it been set up on a dyno with a power commander.
so it smoother than a pole dancers chuff Very Happy

Front end shouldn't feel too light, may need to look at preload on back... the best mod I did was to fit a slipper clutch, the original clutch was very notchy when pulling from a standing start. I am back in UK for a couple of months so popping down your way on a regular basis or we can meet half way some where and spend a day sorting it out?

so thats what you wasted my money on Very Happy
great bikes to ride but the looks don't do it for me.
and despite all the rain, I've more than doubled the mileage on the SB8R.
another hugely enjoyable 160 mile run to the coast today, and it's off to Cadwell Park tomorrow as I'm marshalling at a race meeting.
