the reason all the shootouts can't have anything in common is that the bikes are so close in performance that it basically comes down to personal preference IMHO...

dj dunzie,

Do you still have the flying cowl problem?
It hasn't happened (yet) since I got it re-painted, but all my riding buddies laugh at me now because I'm constantly checking that it's down (even mid-corner sometimes) so they think I'm anal... LOL...

I'll let ya know if it happens again! [xx(]
