I loved my 2000 for 27,000 miles, but when I got to test a 312R at Hockenheim, that 183HP really got my bike-lust worked up.

Fit and finish on the 2000 was better and the original paint scheme...

I don't remember removing them for the adjustment, but I haven't played with them in two years. Once I got them where I wanted, I didn't give them much thought any more.

It was a pretty simple...

There's no way they'd go back to air cooling. They'd be giving up too much horsepower.

The bike with the side exhaust might be a Brutale with F4 bodywork. The tank/airbox looks un-F4-ish. ...

I think you'll have problems using the PCIII and the stock ECU. The PCIII will be able to tune in open loop, but attempts to have it alter fueling in closed loop will lead to the ECU compensating...

I think that the one for the R model will have problems with the RPM. The R model fires the injectors individually, while the older models (like the Brutale 750) fire them in pairs. I believe that...

Wow. I dropped out of sight for a bit so I missed what happened, but am glad to hear you're doing better. I'm always worried when the doctors don't know what went wrong.

Don't worry, Mike. I trust your judgement. The gloss is usually an add-on clear-coat anyway, isn't it?

I wish the 312 had a bit more carbon, less plastic. Compared to the 312, the RSV4 is a...

A friend just got an RSV4 Factory. I haven't seen it yet, but he's pretty excited. I agree about the ugly muffler, but will reserve judgement on the carbon until I see it in person. He says a...

I was using Carbone Lorraine C43 pads when I was racing my 750 and thought them much better than stock. They still worked well enough cold that when I converted back to street trim, I kept them.

I did have someone tell me, "With that bike, even I could have my wife."

I still haven't figured that one out, but I'm not sure I want to.

I commute on my 312R, almost 75 miles round trip. I've got almost 14,000 miles on it. Before that, I commuted on an MV F4S (first, year, a 750) and several Ducatis. Then again, folks who know me...

It was the "only 13,300 miles" part that I felt badly about, considering that I've had the bike for 22 months. My 2000 F4s had 17,000 miles on it after 14 months. Makes me feel like a slacker on...

The bike looks nice. Now that you've got it broken in, you can really start riding it.

Thanks for cheering me up. I was feeling badly about only having 13,300 m. on my 312.

Stop it. You'll turn my head with such talk.

I still have a job (near thing) so it's quite possible. Not sure how I'd cope with a slew of Kiwis though.

Hailwood? Surtees? Dunlop?
