yeah i've seen pics of the black ones, they look great, very aggressive. i'm sure yours sounds aggressive too with the pipe
interesting your report of the bike confirms my impressions, that this would be a great bike for fast touring, especially with that fairing
i can't believe they're being sold for NZ$10k!!!
how do you go getting parts/warranty backup with thses models? it sounds like they were they an official import...
anyway, enjoy! you have a bloody nice bike!
