The only time I did not miss the Vmax was when I owned the GS. I love the Vmax. I will own another.

Bikes like the VMax, B King, and Diavel have to be the cheapest way to get that kind of big acceleration.

Not my thing, but still interesting. I think the fastest thing I have ridden was a late model Speed triple.

The Jean Bonnet Tavern is what I had in mind.

You're asking the wrong person.

It might be better to post this in the Cat Herder, DE Chatter, and SMIB threads, with a date you have in mind, to see what the interest is.

No, I was directing it to you. I just mentioned some of the other Clans in case they might be interested.

Is it me? Or is it hard to reach the controls?
I have to make room to get to switches then move the buttons. Other than that they did keep my hands warm with heat on lowest setting.
Brake and clutch weren't any problem?

But mine do tend to automatically activate my turn signals if I turn the bars lock to lock.(not normally a problem while riding)

The only thing I'm doing in the next couple of months is getting my ass out of Maryland. Then I might go to FL for a month or two. If this is something you're planning for next spring or summer I might be IN.

I think I'm pretty much the only one south of the Mason Dixon that lurks this thread on a regular basis. Dennis scared the rest of them away.

Mark's favorite woodland creature.
Came out of the corn running. 10 feet from me.
Is that an arrow shot or what?.
