Friends 1098s

Well Big K and I's friend just picked up his 1098S This friday.
Man all i got to say is WoW....
I thought my bike had wicked power..i was wrong ..that 1098 is just plain sick..
We took it up in the hill's to go ride around ..little rain but we still went...
That bike handles like mad..and the brakes are very very sweet...
He added pipes and stuff to it ..when i get a chance i will add those pics..

Anyhoot its very late ..i need some sleep

Sweet! Was it worth the additional 5K for the Ohlins on the S model?

I think pretty much everyone is out at this point. We're in podunk nowhere and all 11 of ours are sold. I think some of the Cali dealers were sold out already a month ago. I'll bet the early-release 2008 models will be sold out just as fast this summer too.

Interesting tidbit: We threw a 1098s on the scales this week, it was 412 lbs. wet. We also weighted a 999s, it was 443 wet.

Yeah rain... ha, that's what you get for going out riding with out me Bonkers.

I got to spend some time with Adrian and his new 1098 on Monday. The bike is big, I mean even I fit on it. Bonkers 996 is too small for the Big Kahuna, but the 1098 fits me nice. I haven't ridden it yet, but I'd like to compare it to the new Repsol.

That sucks. I want a 1098 so freakin bad. I guess I need to go put a deposit down.

Bike is worthless. Not even worth rebuilding as a track bike.

Hell no. The forks are bent too. I would buy that for 100 bucks, just so I could throw it off a cliff and video tape it.
