Thanks everyone.. I will take some better pics later today. Its WAY different than the giggy. There is a lot less power, but this one feels like its in the powerband ALL THE TIME which is fun It sounds like a Mac truck downshifting when I hit the throttle. Its fun to cruise and downshift and open the throttle a hit, every one whips there head, no expects that much noise from a little bike. Its not as comfy as the other bike either, but I ll get used to it. I gonna open the clutch this weekend and make some other minor mods to it.. Hope to see you soon

the longer stroke of the desmoquattro vs. the testastretta sounds even better in my biased opinion.

Nice pick up kid

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
