The new fork oil and Bridgestones seem to have really improved the ride. I think I'm done ever thinking of selling this bike. It is an absolute joy, motorcycling nirvana. Best part was having the almost 3 yo grandson press the starter button to fire the Beast to life. He jumped a bit when the Bubs fired up, but what a grin. Also got my first up close look at the yammie triple. Sweet looking bike and the new owner seemed pretty pleased with it. A silver one with the blue wheels, very sharp. He seemed to like the Beast. Two technologies old and new meeting in a gas station going different directions. Definitely a good looking bike for the money.
