Nice. Make sure to give us a ride report after you get a little seat time.

Cool, I'm sure it will prove to be a wise choice.

this bike would be a blast for SM. However, on the track, you have to be willing to crash the bike, and I'm just not there mentally with this bike yet. I have distanzias for my CR250 for running on the kart track, and there's a side of me that likes going against conventional mentality and running a big 2 stroke when everyone else has a 4 stroke (usually the only 2 strokes there are the smaller engined roadrace bikes).

yes...it comes with passenger pegs, the brackets and pegs are easilly removable too. Pretty sturdy, although the seat doesn't have a lot of padding back there..."butt" i'm working on options for a different seat and then maybe even a pad to temporarily put back there when she rides on the back.

Overall I love the bike, more every day. It definitely has a few minor quirks and details to work out, but I knew that going into it, and it's all part of the fun. I've already done a lot to personalize it for my use.

Anyone out there considering this bike...if you take a test ride on one at a dealer, don't be too disappointed in the motor...cause there is a lot of corked up performance just waiting to be unleashed!

If anyone has any specific questions about the bike just let me know, or I could post a more complete report.

Congrats on the new bike.

A buddy that went to Mexico with us loves his.

He did toast the ignition module when he plugged in a GPS with the bike running though.

He carries a spare.

We don't call them buddy pegs where I come from.

Cool ride. Neato bosso as it were.
