I got the 1100 sorted and running great. It's a fun bike. The conundrum is that I have a self-imposed racing career that ends when I turn 60. Means that I have one season, this one, left. Really s ...

I think it has a lot to do with the short production run. In the US, the 750 is the 'king' with 4 years in production, followed by the 900 for 2 years and the 1100 for 1 year. Add to that the fact tha ...

Good lord. The scary part is that the horse alone probably cost two or three times the price of a nice F bike. Add to that the cost of the bike under the horse, and you're looking at $30k or $40k for ...

In that case, check the rear end. The G bikes (8v) are shaft drive, and the E bikes (16v) are chain drive. I probably should have mentioned that in my first post, but all the engine talk had me thinki ...
