Default Took her out for the first time today!

Took my baby out for the first time today for about an hour. Put only 40 miles on her. All I can say is wooooooowwww!!!! The power, the handling, everything about this bike is amazing. Even the ooooohs and awes from onlookers was great!

Didn't waste time with the rain mode. Went straight to race and boy o boy was it fun and liberating. Even got her off the ground in second gear for about 50 yards!!

Here are a few pics of the mods I had put on. R&G everything...no cut sliders, oil and radiator guards, spools and spindles, weighted bar ends, fender eliminator kit, psoff custom signals. I had the mirrors and db killer removed.

I haven't seen an HP4 on the street yet, but wow she's a beauty. Nice tasteful mods all around, and I bet it sounds amazing w/o the db killer. Congrats on the new bike!

Hex, I really didn't want to stop riding, but my brother and his family was on their way up from LA, so I had to get back home.

That's a bar end mirror on the left grip. I just have that one on. I know this isn't good, but I rarely use the mirrors, lol! Most of them are all so crappy that I'm used to lookin over/under my shoulder.

Hmm....you say 50 yard wheelie...in race mode....that's impossible "unless it's different for the HP4", unless your in Slick mode as the ECU prevents wheelies. Did you turn off the Traction control ?
