She's a beaut, eh? She's en route as we speak. I'll be back state-side the first or second week of July to give her a spin!

Getting loaded up:

I swear, this is the longest month of my entire life! I'm a contractor in the middle east and demobilize from my project on 30 June! :eek:

btw, does anyone know what that red sticker on the side is?

Yes the red sticker means it was a 'French Spec' bike, with engine modifications limiting it to 100 hp, in line with their laws. They occasionally find their way to other parts of the world, when stocks of full HP models are low. It actually runs a de-tuned Tiger 1050 engine which is 32hp down from standard, very difficult to put right, have to change the camshafts, pistons, airbox ecu etc.

;) Or maybe it`s not! Looks like a nice bike to me, with some great accessories. I`m sure you`ll enjoy it!

I'm guessing it's a registration or toll tag or something.
