Luimoto has a nice seat cover that would look great on this color scheme

Thanks Phl. It seemed that quite a few of our members have both bikes. They seem to complement each other.

Love it Twisted!! And I actually love the look of these bikes as well.

So far I've resisted trying one since from everything I've heard and read I'd probably come home with one and I need a new bike like a hole in the head.

Would love to hear more impressions compared to your other bikes once you have more seat time.

Enjoy it!!
Thanks from Twistedracer

I may not have the current stable some of you guys do, but I've had a lot of bikes over the years. If I could pick one bike out of them I had to live with and one bike only I think the smart decision would be the beamer. My heart may say otherwise. But, honestly, it's the smoothest engine, lots of power, lots of goodies at a great price, reliable, Great gas mileage, great handling. Best out of the box sportbike you can get imo. Handles traffic as well as high speeds. Just not much to complain about except a lack of character....or do we equate flaws as character?

Still want to try this new v4 out...


Still like my Italians:-)

Kevin my friend Bridgette is after me to come down to the bay to hit the track and ride out to Aliceís. I told her not till our race season is over. Youíll have to give her a try. The engine is like an electric motor with perfect fueling. Iíd worry about adding a pipe as it might hurt the way she fuels. I keep telling my friends that itís my touring bike because of the cruise control and heated grips lol.
Unfortunately this purchase screwed up my plans of stealing that 888 from you next year.
Thanks from KMY

Iím down to just these two bikes. My friends have a habit of talking me out of my projects lol
I agree, we can say the beemer lacks character because itís so refined. Also I never felt any heat from her when I rode her on a hot day last year. It was also nice wearing my thin track gloves on a 47 degree morning and my fingers not getting cold.
But....if I had to have one bike, Iíd leave the streets behind and just ride my Pani on the track.
Thanks from gnance
