Thanks man...I've completed my break in miles but am waiting for a custom exhaust I'm having made. Should get it back on the Dyno in about a month, should be mid 90s.

Now THAT is exciting!!!

(And I recognize, knowing your taste in exhaust, I maybe the only other person on the planet that likes your new exhaust...but so be it.)

Speaking of exhausts...did you know V&H is no longer selling your current exhaust, except as a special order item? They are keeping the black competition pipe, but no longer distributing the plain stainless one. Reminds me...I need to check to see where mine is.

yeah, I replaced my 7" headlight with an 8" and replaced my Viper fairing with a National Cycles fairing meant for Ducati or Triumph.

Dang! Oh I really want one of those
I wish NHRS made some similar with their logo for the 1250 "guerilia" also - BT killer is just plain perfect
