Well, I will only be on dirt road until I get out of my neighborhood (3 miles) then once I get into town I definitely agree that turn signals and a good brake light will be a good idea.

Would you ride this Panigale?

Sure, with higher bars. It looks a little busy, could use a tail and a belly pan I think just to remove some clutter

Whooo I can only imagine a Panigale with some upright bars

So is the trellis on it just decorative? I don't mind the frameless design of the Panigale per se, just that it seems to not be doing well for them racing. Of course, since I am basically a poseur and have only tracked my old Ninja 250 a couple of times, not sure if that matters.

Man, over the winter I replaced the intake seals on my bike, and checked that I had the appropriate jets in the carb and replaced some gaskets. I guess buell/harley guys recommend replacing the intake seals every ~3 years, and mine were the original from '97. Bike now richer across the board, which is to be expected, but throttle response much better. But... I still get damn hiccups at low rpm's under light throttle / low load, which was the main reason I wanted to attack the seals/carb. I think that requires a needle adjustment or something for low throttle/load enrichment, as it goes away when I pull the choke out a bit. It's rich at idle, though. It's better than before, but still annoying when I'm trying to cruise at low rpm's. Before it would hiccup whenever I tried to rev match when dropping gears, which was super annoying. Not sure if I should even bother to adjust it, or just chalk it up to typical Harley issues. I'm more comfortable with adjusting fuel maps on a PC than messing with a carb. Sad.

This winter has been one of the more disheartening I can remember. So I bought myself a little pick me up for my birthday. Decision made.

 

Haven't taken her home yet and all her fancy clothes are still on order, but here's my new girl, getting prepped in the shop:

Awesome. The R version is by all accounts money well spent.

Even though I hate those "new" lights, it is still a sweet ass bike

Well what's to say...

 

It's a 2014 Triumph Street Triple R. 105 BHP @ 11,850RPM and 68NM torque at 9,750RPM. The most perfectly linear power band of any middleweight, adjustable Ohlin's suspension, Brembo brakes w/ABS and a dry weight of 368lbs. She'll be a fully dressed, white sport standard with a seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen, sporting red accents in the gear actuator and rear axle bobbins and protected by Triumph axle and frame sliders, a Rizoma crankcase guard and an R&G alternator cover.

 

She's a bit more nimble than my cuiser:

 

And perhaps a bit more stylish:

Round lights are outdated. Welcome to big lights with sharp angles that paint the road with usable light.
