If they were free I'd take the tricolor, but since they're not I'll go with the non s version. I dont need the Ohlins. Im not going to track it every weekend.

My 996 came with a 190 rear ..but the rim is just 5 1/2 so a 180 fits better ..

I have seen 4 very ugly 1098's all smashed to bits from encounters with a very mean dragon. It was like 4 weekends in a row too that 1 went down a weekend. Haven't heard of any recently getting bitten. They all seem to be taking it easy now.

I just read Sport Riders liter bike comparo, and they were pretty down on the 1098. I normally brush off bad reviews of euro bikes due to advertising bias, but the 1098's lap times sucked hind tit also. I for one was surprised and disappointed.

Aust Motorcycle News reported the 1098S's times around Eastern Creek as very respectable. The S also has the datalogging pack, and thats where they took the lap times from!

Rumour Alert!! AMCN also reported that 1200cc Twins will be eligible for WSBK in 2008. The article had a PR shot of Troy Bayliss leaning on a 1098, except the sticker said 1198. An extra 100cc's in 2008/09, anyone??
