    True, I forgot about the 959, actually. But still...

    I've been casually looking for a sport touring ride to replace my 15 year old Hayabusa. This is the one that keeps rising to the top of my list.



    Stopped in and talked to the dealer today while picking up some parts for my current bike. I think it's when, not if, at this point

    It really looks like some of the parts on that would interchange with a Ducati. What is the seat height on that? It seems most of the Ducati have gotten quite tall.

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    I wouldn't doubt that several pieces are interchangeable across a lot of bikes - WP suspension, Brembo brakes, etc.

    The bike didn't feel too tall - you do need cornering clearance. It did feel narrow. My Hayabusa is very wide, the large tank and wide fairing inners make it seem even wider.

    It's been a great bike. Very reliable, very fast, versatile. It's ruined my perception of what's quick/fast after owning it so long.

    I'm finally destinkifying the Town Car.
    The previous owner was a chain smoker and it was pretty bad inside.
    Everytime you turn on the a/c, you'd get a face full of 24 year old smoke.

    Vinegar water spray into the air intakes while running the a/c and again while running the heat full blast.

    Vinegar mix on all carpet and cloth too, including the trunk.

    When all that dries, I'll do the same with febreeze.

    I'll most likely have to redo it in a couple of weeks.

    As a smoker myself, I must say that I cannot do a car that reeks of stale smoke. The Z4 is leather and I've only ever smoked in it with the roof down. I've never smoked in a fixed roof car.
