Repacked the Micron cans on the 998. My arse was burning and I could smell plastic. Ok, it's time to do it. Rode it today and man is it quiet! After 2 hours I came home and admitted to myself that it really runs better with working mufflers. Guess I won't wait 5 years to do it again.
Took the 9 out for a tankful and had a great time as always. Had a midday appt I couldn't get out of. Gettin to know the bike at higher speeds is a gas. Very stable. Saw two 1098S's and an 1198S. Two beautiful MVs were out too. One of the MV riders really liked the 9. Side by side you could really tell the finish of the Ducati red, even on an eight year old bike was better than the MV red. I do like their silver sides though. Tomorrow the Hayabusa...gotta rotate! Haven't had it out since my five state tour about a month ago!
