I Ride: Panigale, CRF450, CRF50, GROM, bionicon supershuttle
just clocked in at 7000 miles this morning

...on my way to work after a weekend in the mountains with the wife (plus backpack), tank bag full of beer and Jaegermeister ...
here: the wife got motion sick on the dragon, it was not the jaeger's fault




and 3 track days so far, the last one just 1 month ago.



1 roundtrip to indy last year (1160 miles).


and weekend rides up in the smokies every once in a while:




what a versatile bike! i still LOOOOOOVVVVE it! still on the first chain kit (gets "profi dry lube" every 200 miles, 3rd set of tires, 4th oil change, getting a new air filter next week (overdue).

everything works fine, lost some screws, had 2 hard starting issues, before i pulled the canister, the signal switch is starting to give up now and will be replaced soon under warranty.

i am pretty happy choosing the base over the S now, the suspension works great in all situations for me, might go on a set of lighter wheels maybe one day... don't ride too much at night, so the lighter lights are a plus.

haven't "needed" the ABS in a close call situation yet, but tested it several times intentionally (do a full stop every once in a while to keep in shape) and i can tell you can rely on it.

would i but it again? yes.
would i recommend it to anyone? for sure.


just wanted to get this out of my head.

have a good one!
Thanks from DUCENZO, Gunny Fitz, nyandy and 3 others

just got mine back today after a month and a grip of recalls. all the pains aside, it made me smile just seeing it.

even with all it's issues, there isn't another bike I'd even consider.
