Sweet... the SV for summer riding and the Spyder for winter/slippery conditions... I wonder if they'll come up with an enclosed cab option like you can get for small lawn tractors to block the wind when plowing...

maybe they'll even add an attatchment for a lawn mower.

I think it'd be fun to try, but i'll stick with two wheels.

ya, you'd be better off balancing a washer on your chin than trying to balance that thing on one wheel... let alone get the front end up.

no stoppies either, integrated foot brake

I'd be itching to take it for a romp through the twisties and then on a long sport tour. Bet it does ok for some mild gravel trails too.

I'd feel like a douche riding that thing. I'll take my lean angle, thank you. You could get a new R1 for that money.

I'd have to sample Ohlins to say I need it. But I'm quite fine with the stock suspension on my bike. I just want to ride Ohlins to see the difference.
