Yup, we got the VIP bump like everyone else. As for the bike, let me be succinct here: omg. omfg. I have just moved from atheist to agnostic, and evangelical is not looking out of reach. Holy fuck is this bike trick. Forget the shit you can see. That is just window dressing for the heart and soul of what has got to be the trickest ride ever.
Some detail shit:
The racing pipe is 6 lbs vs 16 for the road pipe.
The clutch is dry, as per all the literature.
The forks DO NOT have high/low compression. Damping is split. One leg handles the rebound damping, the other handles compression. Each has an adjuster at the top and bottom, and they are to be set the same.
The front end infrustructure is solid carbon fiber sculpture. Fairing stay, headlight bezel, intake plumbing, all one unit. The CF intake plumbing is mated to a plastic bit just ahead of the adjustable steering stem. There are clips connecting the two parts, but they may still be cemented together.
The videos you have listened to of the race pipe are profoundly misleading. FACK! That thing is painfully loud. What a treat! Aural sex! Yeeeeehahahahaha!!! Did I mention it was nice to listen to?
I could go on for days. The detailed construction is just amazing. Everywhere you look another dead sexy CF structure is lurking.
Riding position will make MJ happy. The bike is roomy, with a loooong reach to the bars.
