This weekend, I ride  Evil



It looks better in person than in the photos, but there are many different angles and lots of different colors on the bike. It needs to be cleaned up a bit.

I'll get more pictures this weekend. All I had was the camera phone this afternoon.

One thing I did notice is the nut crushing power of the bike. It's significanly worse than the 696. Don't italians have balls? I don't get it.

I'm sure they will be gone by then. It just rolled off the van at the point the photo was taken. Big plans are had for the bike.

Detailed report needed.   [moto]

B and I are thinking of replacing our STs with a couple of these in couple years if Ducati fails to release a new ST.

Half way decent review in June's Roadracing World.

I don't know the story with the exhaust, but I do know a guy who can take care of it.

When you ditch the reflectors, send the mirrors packing also.  That bike is screamin for a pair of CRG's. Congrats on the bike.  I can't wait to read what you think about it.  Very, very nice.

Uber cool ride, can't wait for a full ride report. Keep em coming too as you are one of the first I've seen on here to get one.

Everyone bags on the exhaust. Except for the fact that it will flow like crap it's one of the few factory exhausts I thought looked cool. Of course the other was the gold over-under shot gun style on the Z1000. Especially with the tangerine paint. That bike was high on my list til Kawaski changed the exhaust then it got ugly to me.

Congrats, looking forward to the review.

It is with deep regret that I disclose that the bike is not mine. I can't even disclose where I saw the bike should the powers that be get upset. I will only be able to have my way with it once or twice.
