Well I finally picked up the new bike. I rode it part of the way home between NY and Cleveland. I did run out of fuel however which was no big deal when you have a chase truck but I was shocked that the bike has such a small range. I am looking forward to my Arrow exhaust arriving so I can hear the uncorked sound. The fuel injection is crisper in high gears than my 996 and the seating position is much more comfortable for highway use.
