    I did not buy it to kill myself. :P

    It already goes faster than anything I've ever owned. I was originally looking at a 250cc ninja for commuting. Come to find out this thins has damn near 100HP, or did originally.

    Well my target was a ninja with 29HP~ so this is a bit more than I was looking for.

    But I could not pass up the deal.

    But could you effectively use it?

    IMHO, if the motor sounds like it's running relatively normally, I would pull the lowers, run it to op temp, then, using a spray bottle w/ water I would spray each header from in front of the motor. I would be looking for relatively instant boil off, if one header does not boil off as quickly as the others, you may have a carb dumping fuel into the cylinder, this can wash the oil from the cylinder and create 'smoking'.
    Just something quick and easy you can do before pulling the motor and all that.
    Another excessive oil source is the valve guide seals.....

    P.S. Where's your helmet?

    My first bike and my last bike.

    First: 1982 CX500

    Last: circa 1998 Ducati 900 SuperSport

    Sadly, I've been bike free for 8 years now.

    I'll try that out, it runs fine other than smoking after a few minutes of running (i.e. warms up to operating temp). Also, I still have to purchase new riding gear.

    There ya go! That's another reason I stuck with a H-D...besides the rumbling feeling and sound, it's not so twitchy and performance crazed that I'd want to get crazy. I like the lazy style of cruising/riding, press 'n roll through the turns, enjoy the bottom end but let off once I'm going out of the turn. Instead of letting that tachometer beg me to dip past 10k all the time.

    I had an insatiable thirst for speed and high RPMs in my youth...got me into a lot of trouble back in those days, luckily I'm still alive. And I drive slow cars now...Jeeps...so that I don't get crazy again on the back roads (although I'll still push over 100mph on the highways).

    I save my crazy speed for the water....PWCs and boats. My current water toy is an 18' Baja boat. Although I'll probably sell that in the spring...now that I have the H-D, and the house we just bought has a big inground pool in the backyard w/cabana house.

    Live to ride another day! Who cares whos bike is faster, next year you want to be alive and healthy and still riding! Pretty much any motorcycle 250cc and above will give you thrills a car can't, 400cc or higher will smoke just about any car, etc etc.

    Well yeah, how do you go from 0 to 100 in under 5 seconds without it? lol
    You cant legally have fun on a bike like that. You also cant be safe with a bike like that. Thats why I sold it this year lol.

    The only reason I picked this up over any of the 250's, 400's 500's I looked at; was the fact that it was too good of a deal to pass up.

    I don't have that insatiable need to ride and ride now. I'll gladly enjoy it once I get it up and running. No rush, which is how it should be while on the bike as well; no rush at all.

    You may have picked the wrong bike then lol. Its hard to keep a street bike at 35 miles an hour. I mean, in first gear you could prob. do like 65 on a CBR.
