I'm getting the wheels from Pro Cycle, pretty much plug-n-play. They have stock hubs laced up to Excel hoops at Buchanan, using their spokes. No messing around with bearings and/or axles, and fits the stock cush drive, too. No rotors, though, so I need to think about what I want there. I'm thinking Galfers. I could also opt for Rad billet hubs and Sun hoops, both available in tasty colors, but that tacks a healthy amount on the price.

Of course not. That would be dangerous and illegal.

I wish i could have ridden today as the weather in seattle was 55 and sunny. But i had my father drive over and pick it up so i wouldnt have to leave it in a storage unit for a few weeks. I heard it was snowing in spokane yesterday? no good for riding!

Exactly my thought. I was thinking of getting a Warp9 set, but no cush drive. I might be spending a few hundred more dollars, but I know that I'm getting an easy swap set, new bearings and seals already installed, and no fitment headaches. I can even use a re-geared stock speedo drive, but I think I'm going to get a Vapor.

Cute it looks like a real motard, only bigger. And you've gotten it just in time for five straight days of snow.

I plan to. First i want to get rid of the 2x4 seat. then the plan is wings exhaust (akra clone) vortex ecu and airbox delete in favor of a pod filter. How do you like the super duke? I've always wanted to ride one. I had considered it but the smc more fits the riding i do. The place I picked up my 690 at had one for sale with every piece of hard parts bling, carbon fiber parts, and a full twin akrapovic setup. it was hard to pass up for only another 2000.00

The Superduke is the nicest best bike I've ever owned, and I've had 15 bikes over the years. However I love the 690 so picking a favorite is difficult.

I use the SD as my "touring" bike - basically, if I'm riding more than a couple of hundred miles on a trip rather than a day ride I prefer the SD - though I took the 690 on a trip to No CA last fall - I trailered it to No CA and rode 200 and 300 mile days loving every minute of the twisties.

My SD is the bike of choice for touring - hard choice right so the bottom line is you need both.

Nope. Soliciting prostitutes while doing wheelies on the sidewalk in school zones.
