Wow, Vmax Forum...I didn't even realize I was still a member til I found my logon/pw in an old wallet. When my '97 max just wasn't enough power for me, I momentarily considered a new gen2. But the then 19K+ for a bike that's maybe just as temperamental as the gen1 was not as inviting as a 13K Busa that lavishes me with power whenever I twist my wrist. Don't get me wrong, I really loved my max for as far as it would take me. The Vmax is not nearly as quirky as some of the old timer members of the forum. I could go on about that but I'll take my leave. A damn sight faster than you guys!
