That's sound like a potential plan, we haven't met yet and I'd love to see
how it looks and sounds as I really don't need another really loud bike as
the Vrod with the Rinehart pipe is nasty enough!  My girlfriend may go
skiing on Sunday so if the weather is OK we could meet on GPZ's.  You want
to trade phone numbers and we can see if it's a plan tomorrow?  You can
direct email me at johnsoliday at, my home number is 303-772-0228 and
cell is 303-514-4232.

I've got the carbon fibre oval Muzzy on mine, you're welcome to listen
to it if you're around this weekend.  I certain;y wouldn't mind
getting out for a ride on Sunday.  The Muzzy growls a little more than
the SS2R which I'd describe more as raspy.  NOne of them are exactly
"quiet" though the oval's are supposed to be quieter than the round.
