Nice one. Where are you at in Western Washington? I recognize the clouds!

The sun is actually shining here right now, but my poor bike is still in pieces. BUT! I'm painting and masking like a madman. Must get it finished before monday next. After that I won't have two seconds to rub together!

Cool. Nice area. Sometimes wish I lived up there, but the weather is a little bit more moderate down here.

Although, the wind just picked up here and is blowing like a whore on dollar night.

Congrats :beer:

I've had mine since Oct 05 and yesterday I got two riders one on the way into work and one on the way home showering me with compliments on how the bike looks.

The S3 is definitely a crowd pleaser make no mistake.

I have ridden it ;D, got about 30 miles on it. it
got dark the night i got it home (only have a permit)
the next day the girlfriend was complaining about some anniversary thing ???, whatever...chicks ::)
then today the weather goes to hell :mad:

I am actually surprised at how easy this thing is to ride, I've never ridden a street bike before, and never anything with this much power. I couldn't believe how smooth the clutch is (cause its wet?). I am very happy, can't wait to break the engine in so I can really experience what it has to offer ;D

Nice!!

I see by the pics you've got the '06 exhaust. Is it an '06 or early '07?

First thing you've got to do is get rid of those reflectors on the forks and get that big plastic thing off the tail!

thanks guys, I love riding it, finally got past that 3500 RPM limit, don't know how i rode it down there now. I was on a deserted back road the other day coming home from work and I got on it.......WOW this thing gets to triple digits in a hurry. I still haven't taken it past 6000 rpm, so i know there's more in store ;D

I got plans to ditch all of the extra bullshit (reflectors, stock fender), and my carbon fiber mudguard and hugger are waiting for pickup. Will post pics when I do.

Question; how can you tell I have the old exhaust (2006) it is an early 2007. does this mean I don't have to wait for a different exhaust specifically for the 07 (heard they are slightly different). I want some kind of highmount carbon like leo vince or arrow.
