thanks guys, and yes Chuck I'm taking her out daily for local jaunts, probly got 350 miles so far. Handles like a dream and her exhaust note gives me a partial every time I fire her up. The only negative I can even conjure up is lame gas mileage. But I sure love having more horsepower than I need, such a beast.

oh yeah, after staring at photos for weeks I decided I liked red wheels and some contrast in the livery, so bargained for an in-stock Factory, saved a few hundred bucks and am riding now instead of waiting for the Summit Attack special edition (exact same bike with a badge and matte black paint).

I remember everyone was complaining when V4 came out that tank is only good for 100 miles, I once managed to get 205 miles out of mine on the way to ECM, was "hyper-miling" the entire stint knowing that I would have to stretch the mpg's, usually I hit the pumps at 175 miles to be safe, 44mpg if I'm not ripping wheelies.

Also while everyone was busy buying new shiny stuff I got myself a new toy, best I could afford... backup Ape for my Ape

Both through Fishtail (my fave), Palmer is on 8/26, and Tamworth is on 9/23 (it's a special invitation thing, I emailed Tim and put in a good word so he'll probably email you the details).

The twin gets better mileage.

Rich checking his bank account after I pointed out that he needs to loose some weight and should get full exhaust, also that Ape really needs more power
