I have a LOT of work to do before it'll be what I want it to be. I already have a couple of boxes full of farkle stuff waiting for spring, and more on the way. First thing is to get screens on both radiators to protect them before I ride it to any extent. Then I'll do things to tailor the riding position to me. It's supposed to make 155 hp for a weight of 360 lbs. Thankfully, it has an adjustable traction control setup. Brakes are tremendous. One finger is all that's needed.

Talked to a gentleman that just got one...His words were something like "stupid fast" and the brakes were akin to a landing trap on a carrier (with one finger)...I believe it all...Good luck trickin it out...

As long as you give thanks every time you head out on the Dukati he will be happy you got it.

I say thanks to my folks for a lot of the toys I have.

They will be with your Pappy shaking their heads right now.

Cheers

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
