Default On my way home with my new 599

This is my second 2006 599. I missed my old one (two bikes ago), so when my Kawasaki dirt bike got stolen off my driveway, I found this one in Denver. Went up on the bus and rode it home to Albuquerque the next day on my birthday.

Looking good! Have you run it up through the top end of the whole rpm range yet? That style of power delivery must be a big change from your previous few bikes. It what I miss about the 599 after I spend time on a higher torque/lower rpm engine.

This one has a ridiculous, embarrassingly loud racing pipe. It reaches 100mph at 7.5k rpm. I wonder what it would do at redline (13k)? Right after the windshield, I'm getting a sound suppressor.

My bike was a real surprise the first time I hit the redline. In fact the experience changed my opinion of the bike. I use to fantasize about what bike I’ll get next... use to...
