So before I started bolting on the new parts, we went for a 150 miler to warm tthe bikes up.
Candic tried out the 1098 for about 10 miles, to see if it was any better in the big winds we were having. She was still more comfy on her speed 4, with the higher bars.
Good thing as we got near Tung River Reservoir, the road was slick with Cow pies from a resent drive. Spoiled the best curves of the day.
Before I read the post, I saw "wife rides" then saw the picture with your missing fairings and the first thing I thought was that she trashed it. Then did a light skim and I though she trashed it due to cow shit... lol
