Couldn't do IT...

Not one nibble, and then the cattle started to whittle down the value, realistically or NOT.

I have too much invested:
years of love and cherishing
upfront $45K
service costs
Brembo Master cylinder and calibers
HiD light
Quickshifter
CC rearsets & chainguard
Sil Hoses new and new impeller
new Pirelli corse tires and front brake pads
matching helmet and misc parts & replacement parts

My issue with Tam 292 ONLY was neck comfort. The machine was loved and a BEAST .

Mr Ferracci knew of my discomfort and came up with a solution. Machining high quality new handle bars, this install has raised me up enough to reduce my neck extension angle and has significantly improved my comfort at the helm. On a few rides now, I clearly note a more upright position and 's have returned.

I look forward to a longer riding session this weekend to further evaluate this subtle but REAL modification. As regards neck pain, subtle changes in position are the difference between feeling good and not.

So there you have it my friends. Tam 292 was NOT sold, and a travesty averted.

292 remains and dear to my heart

Glad to hear that cause I was about to offer you 15k...just kidding. I've got the same neck issues with the riding position, to think I was using the bike for touring in the recent past.

nice, mv's should never be sold 2nd hand!

i also suggest trying another brand of helmet as the shape of your current one might not be best suited for you, and maybe a double bubble screen might deflect some of the wind. I once had a helmet that made my neck hurt and swapped over to another brand and the pain went away........ just a thought
