  1. Hi riders!

    After many sleepless nights and what seemed like an unendurable wait, I finally got my new mistress. Been having so much fun with it (much to the missus' dislike) that I totally forgot about posting here!

  12. Thanks guys! I sure am enjoying it :)

    It's really smooth to accelerate, was quite noticeable when taking a '12 for a test ride right after a '07. Sounds so much meatier too.

    Same... love the matt black with gold trim. Shall have to get some gold shiny things in the post...

    Yeah that's what i've justed switched from, an '07 to an '09.
    Both bloody awesome in their own right.
    My next trip to P.I. for a track day might shed some light on which one i prefer!
