LOL! Sadly I haven't had much time as of late to get philosophical, perhaps coming in here will be motivational in that regard.
I'll make a proper thread, introducing myself and my new beauty in just a moment.
As for the exhaust, the bike I have is essentially a stock 04' 955i with a new Barracuda high-mount coming soon. If the TORS will work well enough than I'll see if the local dealer will flash my ECM. I was really quite set on a ZARD exhaust as the 1050 I originally was going to buy had one and it sounded VERY nice; however the Barracuda exhaust is coming at a very good price (NIB) from the previous owner of my bike so I couldn't pass it up.
