5'9" with Powercells 277mm suspension on a '07 ABS. Tippy Toes but it's the best bike I've ever ridden.

gefr is your Man

Check out gefr, he has a much more reasonably priced option for the tea-bag and small internal paper filter. Quality seems pretty good although I've not fitted mine yet.

Cheers,

Michael

'07 990 Issues

Some of the early EFI bikes have a throttle like a on/off switch so yes, get a modified throttle grip cam straight away. Otherwise, just enjoy the bike for what it will give you.

Tassie is going to be the last week of March 2015 - best time of the year down there and also coincides with a couple of Relay for Life events. Maybe Victoria after that then off to Yulara?
