Just have one. Already had to put new clutch plates in and it's raining and chilly here in Kansas. More pictures will definitely be posted.

Black and Silver, one of my favorite combinations. It's sunny here today but just below freezing and salt residue still on the roads. Not riding weather here yet.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Very nice Roadie. Have you noticed much difference with the 1700 or have you had time to ride it enough?

I don't notice much difference at all really. My 1600 Had aftermarket pipes and a hypercharger. I almost think it pulled harder. Still haven't road the 1700 much yet though. Mid 60's the next couple days so it will be happening!
