Interesting data.  Fun to see a summary of real world use.

Happy Solstice!

The 2018 summer solstice occurs at 6:07 a.m. on June 21.  Plan your celebratory breakfast now!

The Tuono is a neat bike.

Excellent suggestion.  I put a double-bubble screen on my sport bike thinking any extra protection, albeit small, would be good.  As it turns out, I like the feel of the stock lower screen better.  I was very surprised.  The stock screen is back on.

I have ridden a Piaggio three-wheeler (with two front wheels closed together and leans).  It was a hoot.

They are said to be popular in Europe in towns with lots of slippery cobbled streets.

Bike Help / Re: Repacking Mufflers?

It is regularly available, and some manufacturers even provide kits.  This is one of the things that made me curious.

I have never repacked a car or bike muffler, have never noticed an issue or change, have never seen hot spots on the muffler indicating a problem inside, etc.  Thus I am curious if this is a real world issue, only for the fussy, or limited to a racer's concern where sustained high RPM full throttle produces a difference environment and is hard on mufflers.

Bike Help / Repacking Mufflers?

This is prompted by wanting to learn, not by any issue.

When do motorcycle mufflers need to be repacked?  How do you know it is time?

Not off hand, but will happily direct anyone I learn of to take a look here.

A wonderfully fun bike.  I have a 1098S Streetfighter and love it.

It appears a number of us are in this position.

But, unfortunately, it appears both the forum and the Facebook page are very slow currently.

I'm not, being insufficiently social to be on social media.

But this explains why when I searched and found the Facebook page the few things I saw were ancient.  :)
