Today I ride with a friend and can share the two bikes all day doing off road. It was wet and muddy.
After ride the ST the 660 was so light and fun, I felt so confident…
I’m nearly convinced to have the 660, is an ideal bike to me…. but I’m looking the way to keep the ST, I love it so much…. Divorce???

Keep it! You can always find a new ms but to find a new ST like yours will be difficult!

Beaver Tail State Park James Town Rhode Island...

Did this the morning after the Twisted Throttle open house...I use to SCUBA Dive here when I was in College....nasty current rips around both sides of the point...You were considered hardcore if you dove the point....at least in our little world....did it once. That was enough.

Thanks for the info, I'm going to look at their site. I like it and I like that you can make them flash.
