That bike should have spoked wheels.

Disagree. It's meant to take the Bonnie platform in a more sporty direction - rather than to please the vintage revival crowd. 20%more torque @3200rpm than the older Bonnie. Take that Honda.
But it's also supposed to be easily customizable. So who knows what options will be available. I bet they felt threatened by the RnineT
Not only are the housings too long (which wouldn't be terrible, they would just hang out extra far), but the cables inside are a couple inches too long and thus no amount of adjustment can take out all of the slack.
I put my damaged cables back on (changing them is a PITA) and they are still functional enough that I could go out for one last bit of a ride in order to burn off the old gas in the tank, fill it up with fresh gas, and add some stabilizer.
That's fucking sick.
Just finished anatomy on tuesday. No mandatory classes for the rest of the year I don't think. Time to put the new fork on and take the bike to a shop to get the ride/sag sorted. Hopefully should be done in the next two weeks so I can ride as the weather shapes up in mid march!
Signed up for the basic course at the end of the month. need to get my bikeeee build.
The goddamn heated grip I ripped off is going to be a huge pain in the ass. The company doesn't make them anymore so I'm going to have to gut everything off if I want to install new ones. It was all done so well too and they worked phenomenally. Fark.
BMW s1000r vs. s1000rr vs. Panigale 959 vs. Aprilia Tuono for my next bike? I realize they're all pretty different, but I love them all for differing reasons. The Aprilia seems like the best of both worlds with it's semi-fairings and upright riding position, but having spend some time on the new r1, I'm loving the aggressive stance as well.
I thought you were sold on the R1 after I read your impressions of having ridden your buddys!
