Ride!!

Got to get the bike out for awhile today before it rained. Was almost 60, which is warm for here in feb. First time out with new pipes and intake on. Also put pipe ends and sissybar plate i made at work on. Looks good! Just need my fuel processor.

looking good... what shield are you using?

I have been able to ride in Jan and Feb, definitely rare for the northeast.

PS, I hear 2007 Red 900 Customs are the fastest year made

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

Actually, 2008... brighter "PASSION RED" = MUCH faster.

Sorry guys but its and optical illusion. Red looks fast standing still, but sapphire blue is a sleeper. Out of nowhere she's suddenly in front of you!

Bike looks great! And honestly I think the 09 SE black and orange is the fastest. I know this because i pulled away from my buddys dark blue 900.
