I know what ya mean. It was my dreambike for about 15 years before I got my hands on one. Im sure it was one of my 1st few posts here.
In fact, I joined this forum about 10 or 11 months before I even got my max.
Its been a fun ride (and transformation) over the past 9 years.
This is THE BEST forum for info, tips, and tricks for everything VMax.
