You said cave. I caved. It was actually your and Mike's convo that got me thinking about it. Andrew and Dave referred me to Jason at Seacoast who, conveniently, had the Hyper SP and the Tuono both prepped for demo rides as I rolled up. Not an easy choice, both are dreams to ride with tons of grunt, hard to believe there is a significant horsepower gap between them. What tipped it was not wanting to worry about scraping pegs and having way more horses than I'll need to tap into.

The anticipation is definitely a spirit lifter.

This picture sums up about the amount of ‘convincing’ you needed from all of us combined:

Niiice! Excellent, Congrats!!

I tell you, Riding Mike's was like having the front axle right in my hands and I felt like I could do anything I wanted with this bike. Well...not so much because Mike was right behind me keeping a watchful eye on the proceedings, but left alone and to my own devices? Some minor adjustments and yeah, I could shred on that bike!

Good Choice!
