Hiya all, just signed up and have been reading posts. I'm reading some disturbing things about the bike I'm waiting for. I have a 748 race bike currently. Can anyone compare the 1098 to that? I have the option of getting a 999R for close to the 1098 price. Is that a good idea or should I just stick with the 1098? I realize I sound like a total knob here, but I'd like to get your opinions! Cant wait to have my new bike!!!!
