It is pretty sweet! I'm anxiously waiting for the dealer to call to tell me
it's in. He expects it in mid-December.
Break in is going to be a challenge. I think I'm limited to 5500 rpm for
the first 1000km, then 7000 rpm up to 2500km. Finally, after 2500km it's
clear to the rev limiter...
...this may take a while but I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes
and what I think.
Up front, the first impression sitting on the S4Rs at the dealer - a
beautiful black 2007 model - was how comfortable it was. It actually has a
slightly more upright/less aggressive riding position than the GPz. My legs
(I'm 6'2"/210lbs) tucked in like the bike was custom fitted. So, the bike
seems to fit well at least static.

Well, Christmas came early for me this year.
I've got to make room in the garage for a new 2008 Ducati Monster S4R S
