    Hey Kevin, why tired of 990? I thought those bikes were the pinnacle of long-distance ADV bikes, so confused how one could get bored of one. Pray expound!

    Ok...if I may take a bit of your time. Am trying to build/cut/weld something to mount a "beak", and I also like the way you trimmed the belly pan on your bike. What did you use to trim the belly pan? Do you have any pics of the beak mount? Thanks...Chuck

    Hey Kevin,
    Great to hear from you again.
    I too can't join for similar reasons

    BTW: I wrote an article for an Israeli motorcycle site about my adventures in Vermont..
    The original Hebrew version:

    Not sure you can read Hebrew, here is the automatically Google translated version:

    Would surely like to meet and ride again with you. We had heck of a good time in VT.

    Shana Tova! Happy new year.

    Danner21,

    I boiught my bike used and it already had a full Leo Vince header and exhaust. But I do love the deep sound that is never too loud (no highway drone) even with baffle out. So mine is not an M4. But once you change the header, most skidplates will no no longer fit unless heavily modified (at least with Leo Vince). The hp gain is probably insignificant without mapping and K&N air filter and only minor with those mods, so if it were my money I'd get just an exhaust and not the full system. I believe the Scorpion probably among the best value in a slip on. A full header becomes more of an asset when internal engine mods are done (cam, hi compression piston). I had Remus carbon fiber on my 2004 VFR and it was high quality and nice sound. But a piped twin sounds more bad ass regardless of brand.

    Hey, I am contmeplating the M4 system full header/carbon can. Do you regret the pipe/tuner upgrade or do you feel it was worth the money?
    Thanks- Its about a 1000.00 upgrade so all the info is helpful
