Bye guys...

Well, the bike sold yesterday. I can say I am sad about it, but glad to move on. I regret nothing of buying it despite its gremlins and Italian "personality." I am very thankful I found this board and learned over 2.5 years the things I did, and met all of you. It was lots of fun. This board is a wealth of knowledge. The people here, including the light handed mods, are amazing sources of information.

I thank you all for providing the 24/7 resource of information when needed, about my part time temperamental machine. At the end of the day it was completely a good choice and one of the most fun bikes I have ever ridden.

I will still be around and reading stuff on here, but not as much as I did before. I wish all of you well with your machines.

Thanks from AntiHero, Phl, flobrandx and 19 others

At the risk of sounding like an artsy-fartsy tree-hugging, inflatable raft piloting Greenpeace daffodil, I truly believe bikes come in and out of our lives for reasons. There's lessons learned and memories made with each one. Well wear with the H2 and enjoy her in the best of health.

Yes sir I do.

As far as a comparison or review, I just don't have an answer yet on performance. I am only at 660 miles and minutes ago did its first oil change. (Remember the days of that gentlemen, without having to beg someone to hook it to a 20,000 dollar computer to reset a light). I have kept it generally at 4,000 rpm - 6,000rpm on highway. It does make the coolest noise when you shift and the waste compressed air vents out.

Suspension wise it is way different than my Panigale. The turn in is obscenely fast on this bike. I literally scared the fuck out of myself hitting a nice sweeper on the first ride, I know exactly how the Panigale handles it, done it 500 times, but the H2 dove in like it was a hooker on her first cock of the day. Turned in so hard it gave me a quick scare, but then it was flat and nice. The geometry is really sick. Don't get all butthurt, I can say this part because I have owned a Panigale for a while to make the comparison.

I am going from a 196 rwhp torque beast to a 200 rwhp boosted bike. After I get past 1,000 and run it up, I will give a report back to ya'll.

Thank you guys !

Thanks from Phl, Stw, Twistedracer and 4 others
