I like my 06 and all, but man, the lines on the T595 are timeless.

I've only ever seen one locally, in the flesh, and it was yellow. Now yellow is not a color I would ever pick for a bike, but on a Daytona, it looked right.

I'm glad we are having this Daytona pat on the back session here, makes me like my bike more and kind of not want to get rid of it. I now understand that performance wise it may not keep up with the Japs, but it has the indescribable cool factor that puts it above them.

Her is what I'm working with, not the best pictures, its cold today and didn't feel like whipping it down.

And a sound clip. Again, its cold and I didn't want to do much as far as theatrics, so its just a sound clip.

My '98 lives on a HF dolly on a patio. That pic of a T595 in the comparo post seems to be a '97 with the oil sight hole in the lower chin fairing.My '98 does not have the oil sight hole. I intend to make my own soon.

Felony,

Is that a Corbin seat on your bike? I've read that the stock seat on early T595/955i's pushes one into the tank. If that's a Corbin, did it correct that problem? Also, did you ever give risers a try?
