Picked up my R

Half way home from picking up my R a few miles outside of DC, just grabbing some McDonalds junk to fill me up for the ride I wanted to make a few points.

Damn that full exhaust- that bitch is loud!
Earplug purchase is paramount.

Progressive setting- absolutely hate it. Since I bought my S last December it was always on factory settings. With the swing arm on flat. Yes, bumps SUCKED, but the bike felt more glued to the road to me. The guy I bought it from had Q3's installed as well as having the swing arm set to P. In a straight line I feel the bike is just plain sloppy, but I found myself gliding around twists faster and smoother. We'll see how this tire/suspension thing goes.

The thing definitely pulls harder, not a killer amount but enough to make you (nearly) soul yourself.

Typing this on my iPhone, so no pics yet. Once I get the fugly antlers off the bike and get the DP block offs installed later today, I'll be back.

When attempting to install the DP Aluminum Block Offs what do you do with the remaining wire connector? Does it tuck in under it? Haven't had a chance to take a look yet.
