I have to say, this makes the bike feel even more hooligan. It's really wet around here since we've had about 12" of rain in 2 weeks. As soon as it dries up and is warm enough, I'm going to go do some trail exploration. On the pavement, I can't see running these tires long term. It's a completely different feel.
I have pretty much completed the journey of building the 08' to what I envisioned. I owned an 08' back in 09' and kept it a few years. It didn't get the attention it deserved as I was doing mostly track days and had a full time 10r track bike. I sold it. I always watch them go by on craigslist and eBay, but never thought I'd find a brand new 08 1100S sitting at a dealer. So glad I kept looking. There really isn't another bike like the Hyper.
I'm going to paint the fairings and PC the second set of wheels I just bought. Also going to heat coat the headers and exhaust canister.
*I'm still wanting to confirm the front brake rotor sizes between the Gen 1 and Gen 2. I want another set of rotors, so do I have to buy Gen 1 rotors? I'm finding conflicting info on line.
Pics are Day 1 and then yesterday. April to October 18'.
