I think I need a gold wing, or at least a Wee-strom or Connie to make the bike look normal size Very Happy

That must be it!! I just can't really enjoy the track if the bike is gorgeous ROFLMAO

I think the cure for you would be to get some multicolored fairings for the Duc and think of it as the Ninja Smile

Not as exciting as I had hoped for! Going around the track, averaging 75mph (a friend timed a few laps for me), wasn't as adrenaline filled as I expected with three times the horsepower and tons more torque than the ninja. I'm thinking it is a combination of a relatively boring track (looooong curves that seemed to go forever), not being as comfortable with the Duc as the ninja, and not really pushing myself to the limit (crashing is bad Wink ). I was going ~100mph around turn 8, and it just didn't feel very fast! It was still lots of fun, just not like I expected it to be. The weather was gorgeous, and I burned probably four gallons of gas for the 104 miles I went! Got some awesome pictures out of it though -
