Me, too! But I'm not a tall guy so the ADV bikes can feel awkward. And they're heavier, too. I always wanted the FZ1 to be about 50lbs lighter, and that's about where the SS falls. But now I'm heavier so I've screwed that up!

Good Aussie video of a red one with the Akrapovic soundtrack (nice!). Good to hear the opinion of the typical rider.

Thanks. Yep, I've known about it for a while now. Plan to drive over to the dealer once it cools off some more. I've heard it's a 15 minute fix to reroute the overfill hose.

In the meantime, I haven't posted any pics since I did some new mods.

Sorbothane Vibration Damping Film 40 Duro, 0.125 x 6 x 12 inches - 20x70mm sections--two per mirror--to dampen mirror vibration


And it has a new rear tire. I recently got a bad screw in the stock Pirelli. Changed out for Michelin Road 5.

Still have the stock exhaust.

Thinking about Termignoni, because they're working on fuel maps for the Supersport.

With their UpMap app and T800 device that simply plugs into the underseat cable, you can change the mapping from your smartphone! Whoa!

Mazel tov on the bike! It's gorgeous. I may have to look at this more closely at the next motorcycle show. Not like I currently have the fiances for it.
