That's one big Duc! You certainly look excited. Congrats on the new purchase.

My local race shop had one of those Diavels apart and was developing a Penske shock for it. I got to look it over up close and it's a pretty interesting motorcycle.

When You have the Power You can do anything you need to do, Any time you want to do it.

There is a twisty thing under your right hand...:crackup:
all the power in the world wont make a big bike nimble in the twisties...which was kind of my point. i can spank liter bikes all day long at the track on my wifes cbr600rr because while the liter bikes churn more power, the 600 is much easier to throw around

at 162 hp, 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of ~160mph its plenty fast enough for its intended purpose and thats allowing me and the SigO to ride two up comfortably for road trips :grin2:

thanks. gonna take a while to get used to riding a twin...engine complains a little under about 3500rpm. but its a comfortable ride and peel-the-skin-off-your-face fast. looking forward to taking it on a long haul and seeing how that feels.

actually, nimble is more a matter of bike geometry, center of gravity, weight, et cetera...

The Nimble is done with Chassis setup...

The torque Of the ZX-10R, combined with the nimble I put in, Rules..:thumbsup:

I'm also a huge fan of the Scotts Stabilizer Damper...So the nimble doesn't go wrong.... :grin2:

Have to add, Nimble is also a product of Your Riding Background...

Ride Dirt in knarly mountain trails.. You toss your bike around trees & boulders, and ruts...
Ya gotta tell your bike what to do... :crackup:
