BTW, gave her a full tune-up in the fall just before I put her away. Synced throttle bodies, etc. She's good to go!

It is factory, and good luck finding one.

El Fenix is correct, factory "unicorn" box. I'm keeping it in a non-disclosed location under heavily armed guard

Actually the purchase of that bike was full of Easter Egg surprises like the trunk. I thought I was getting a smaller soft tail bag until I saw the bike on the truck.

Mrs. MHS rode her new bike on Friday and then last night to some school board meetings. She never did that with the Speed Four, so I think she must be really happy with it. She definitely is more confident on it through corners.

She may actually be willing to part with the S4, hmmmm.

Did oil change Saturday.

I'm looking at getting a Daytona 675 to compliment the Sprint. A couple near me new for like 9K out the door. Thoughts on this plan?

Well a Daytona is definitely a more sport oriented bike and would be fun. Not the torque of your Sprint. Different tool for the job, and you might love it in the technical rides (twisty canyon runs). I love my Speed Four for that, but the triple' s torque is missed.

Yesterday, not today, but I knocked out the 30k service on the black one. All but the brakes, anyway- still need to swap in some backup calipers for while I thoroughly clean/rebuild the ones that are on there.

Cheers,

After a little fumbling and learning things the hard way I bled the front brake lines. Man the right side bleed valve is hard to get to on my front wheel. Hooray for mity vac tools though. Made the job much easier.
