Well I fell off the bandwagon again. So now I guess it’ll be called Achtung Baby Deux (in keeping with the A.B.D. abbreviation.) I was all over on bike options (really isn’t that unusual) but ended up on another Roundel bike, this time without the super tanker option and so far I’m thinking I should’ve chosen this route the first time. It’s about 40 lbs lighter which some of that is due to carrying 2.6 gal. less fuel but its nice not having all that girth and getting to feel the wind. I’ve got 1st service scheduled for next Saturday (6/1) so you know what I’ll be doing the next 2 days.

I’ve ordered engine protection bars and I got GAP this time so *if it happens again I won’t be out as much money. I will say Geico did great on the valuation which helped a lot with this bike purchase.

Stick, Chuckracer, redpato and 4 others like this.

Shiiiiiiiiit. All this talk about the Hyper SP has me missing my Hyper. Loved that bike, now I have to consider getting another...

If enough of us get one, should we change ECM to ECHSPM?

Congrats!

There is some unfinished business at the Rattler... If I was closer I'd say let's try this again (yet to ride it) perhaps in the fall?

Now that there's a pretty little motorbike. . And I don't think you'll miss the 2.6 gal fuel, my tank always lasts longer than my bladder.

Fuel range on this more than adequate. Iíve only got 330 miles on it. The computer says Iím averaging 50 mpg but I was stuck behind some harleys on the Cherohala today. Iíll verify that at the next fill up. I suspect itís closer to mid 40s.

BTW, had a guy try to block me from passing him in his Jeep on the Cherohala Sunday. Seems to be coming more and more of an issue in that area.
