I picked up my Supersport S in Las Vegas last Friday, June 30th. What a great bike. So far, I've put about 200 miles on it on two rides and have loved every minute of it. As
everyone knows, the mirrors are super vibby. I call them my Minecraft mirrors because everything behind you buzzes so much it looks like a scene from Minecraft.

No real seat heat for me, but my right foot by the exhaust gets pretty **** hot and that is even with my Dianese Course boots. Then again,
it was 108 degrees out so everything was pretty hot and I was in full leathers. To combat the heat, I did a trip up to Mt. Charleston and Lee Canyon where we have a few curvy
roads, but the real benefit is that it was only 77 degrees up there. The Supersport handles very nice and is very flickable and the seat is very comfortable too. I upgraded the head lights and removed all the stickers.
A new tail tidy is next.

If the heats not a problem for you in Vegas, im sure Cali will be just fine!
The heat's not a problem in Melbourne at the moment - It's a heart-stopping 6 degrees C at present. Thank the lord for the heater under the seat!!:grin2:

In the second pic, if you look to the right of my windscreen you can see a wild horse. There were 5 of them in the field grazing on grass.

Welcome at the forum.

I always thought Vegas is surrounded only by dessert. Nice to see you have some forrest as well :)

Yes, we are surrounded by desert pretty much everywhere, except these mountains. They are only a 45 min ride from Las Vegas and give some relief from the heat in summer, hiking in the spring/fall and you
can ski/snowboard in the winter. One of the few areas with any curvy roads too. Glad they are close by.

I'm not sure that we can't put off these stickers in France. Some of these are identifying the bike (serial number etc.) and one having the sound level (DBs / rpm) has to be there. I'll have a look.

We are not supposed to either, but here in the US, most of us do anyway. There are certain states (looking at you California) that are much more stringent about the stickers, but for the most part, Law Enforcement doesn't bother us about it...probably didn't even know they were ever there to begin with, TBH.

I already forgot the look of my SS :'(

I understand, it's difficult to be separated of such a beauty !
I don't have it today, leave it for the 1000km service (well 1600 in fact), and it's already difficult !

For the stickers, I can't check today, but I think there are more than the 'standard' legal one.
And in our french case, we have 2 others to add : insurance & air quality 'critair' , I had difficulties to find a room for these 2.

I will ride to Overton with you through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area if you like curvy roads.
