Test rode her for about an hour after installing my Cobra FI2000 Auto Tune device.

My seat of the pants dyno says it accelerates harder. Haven't noticed any difference in the decel popping once in awhile, didn't feel any "lean surge" while riding but I was hammering it most of the time.

71F yesterday, 43F today with winds @ 40mph gusts to 70, no ridee today.

Default smart azz talon

Nice 93 mile curvy county road ride. However when back in my small city, I had to keep a smart azz in a dirty, smoky, Eagle Talon from cutting me off 3 different times. I sure do like the mid-range torque of this bike. We went by a cop while he was tailgating me and the cop did nothing, cop was on his cell phone.

Default rear bicycle reflectors gone

Late last night, I removed the rear reflectors and cut off the tabs that held the reflectors.
May not be ready for "trailer queen" status or the "show circuit" yet, but it still looks purdy good ......
