My First Black Motorcycle...:)

Obviously hadn't posted in awhile. Sold my 929 a few months ago to save up for a big downpayment on my new ride. It came in today..

Well, let me be the first to call you a cockhole.............er, I mean congratulate you.
Booth beat you by a couple days to be the first, but you picked the color I would have if I were in the market.

Re: My First Black Motorcycle...:)

First impressions? I just put a hundred miles on it so I don't have much to say power wise. I did pop it above 6 for a bit and the bike is pretty much a different animal at that point. The radiator is friggen huge, there is no trunk (as everyone has stated). On/Off throttle is pretty bad, but I think it is because it needs to be adjusted to my liking. Hydraulic clutch is great, the adjustability knob is fantastic. The seating is good, but I can't tell if it is better than the 929.
It seems like a great bike. I just need to reverse the shifting with a set of rearsets and I will be ready for my MAY 16th track day.

That was the best race I have ever seeen....

Re: My First Black Motorcycle...:)

I did not want anything with a Wing on it. They REALLY need to re-think this graphic design.
Black really was the only choice. This leaves me a fairly simple way to repaint or get new track plastic without having to involve a wing into something.

That was the best race I have ever seeen....

I've been focusing on my little girls and school. I found myself spending too much time on this site and not enough time doing important life things.

Re: My First Black Motorcycle...:)

Dude, (cue the cheesy love music)

We've always had the same taste in vehicles, having both had a 929 and the GTI. Good to see you're still alive and kicking man.

Really cute kid too, glad to see she didn't take after her old man.

Keep the sunny side up.

Be fast or be last.

Re: My First Black Motorcycle...:)

Very nice! How did you get a black one...I thought only the red/black were shipping? Can you post a larger pic?

Welcome back, btw!
