forgot how good this is....

while having lunch next to it and after 2 years on a display stand, i took it down on impulse to go for a ride.
But before i can do that, i had to change the oil, top the fluids, empty the bad oxidized gas tank, and change the battery.
Bike started right up with zero fuss, Chen's crew got me going in less than an hour!!

and how does it ride??
f@#$%^&*()&^%$king scary fast and nimble compared to the stuff i been riding lately. I totally forgot how fast this thing is and how much it wants to free fall into turns, major super scary! im getting too old for this,............. but really enjoyed it!

i cant believe i use to put my knee down on such a thing, seriously retarded, after numerous sports bikes, im in awe that people ride these things.

That must have been very nice.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Cheers Donsy.
Beautiful bike, the F4CC.
Several guys at the Bubbalicious have ridden this particular bike including Chuck, Andrew, Ed, Randy, Donsy & Ade.
It's great to share this bike with friends - not stick it on a stand on display.

I congratulate you on riding yours.
Some people never do.
That's a real shame in my opinion.

The OEM tire on the CC is a Pirelli as can be seen on John's bike above. The ones on mine are Michelin Power Ones.
