Mike: I've never had the opportunity to ride a MM but I expect it's a better street/canyon bike......balance shaft, street trans, more brakes, tach....the weight difference isn't going to cover all those bases........ and I'm no longer willing to stick it out far enough to find the differences bike-to-bike......hell, I'll pull over for a well-riden RD....Bruce

I think the orange is not that bad actually.

The exhaust weights however should be banned!
What are they called, tube manifold covers? I have always wondered what they do (besides adding weight)

warmer weather....

I brought my HP2 from wisconsin to Huntsville AL in my vehicle. I'm here for work for two weeks, the weather is great. I ride in the cold but not below 25deg or so. Love the HP thread. It's been pretty shitty in WI, I haven't riden since dec1, remembering why I love this bike..........

Perfect

Based on the protection from both my small and large screens, I'd say you have arrived at the perfect balance....very nice work! Bruce
