    1,000 cc - Very fast and fun!
    21,500 miles
    Full fairings
    flush-mount turn signals
    fender eliminator

    Video of it running http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXHo5...ature=youtu.be

    By the way, the puddle under it is water from just washing it

    Dang, I am jealous... I sold my bike to buy the first boat. Been itching! Congrats! I want one of those sweet Victory's like Mike got!

    That 1000 looks seriously fast. My brother has a 600CC that does 172mph. BE CAREFUL!

    I rode a few FZ1s and they are nice, the newer style is a little better. I'm thinking about a Tuono V4 in a few months, but I like the GSXR that I have pretty well.

    thanks guys. Lovin' it for sure, and yes, it is VERY fast, and it is taking quite a bit of self control, but I've been doing pretty good. There's a nice sweeper by the house, that with the 600 was easily 70-80. Christina and I went for a spin and I was in like 4th or 5th gear, just rolled on it a little through that curve and we were doing 95 when I looked down! Oops... Picking up an Ohlins shock for it tomorrow
