Yeah, I just got a call from my dealer to go test drive one and see if it's faster than mine.

EDIT: The dealer test drove my bike to get an idea what the Blackjack should perform like, since I've got all the go-fast mods the Blackjack has(And several it doesn't).

Hey, just wondering....

....I have an '08 Pamplona with 3K miles. With that as a trade-in, what would it cost to get a Black Jack?

I know I would have to wait my turn on the list.

I don't think most dealers would do a trade-in, which would mean they'd buy your Pamplona outright from you. They may sell on consignment or you could sell yourself.

I would be very interested in a review of the Black Jack by someone who has been riding a stock 125.

Yeah, It took poor Renae forever to paint "Black Jacks are Here" on the side of the building. Came out great though. Razz

Don't know. We took two deposits for Black Jacks this morning and we only have two left without deposits. I expect them to be spoken for by the end of the weekend. Perhaps next batch we will be able to use one as a demo.

Ghetto Buddy can pretty much wheelie on command. I think it's the combination of the 10 gram weights and the 1500 rpm spring on the clutch. There's a trick to it tho' - Get it just rolling, about 4 mph, then back off the gas, then nail it. I've ridden a wheelie on it further than I'm comfortable.

Hmm, I'll have to try it like that. I've got slightly heaver(11g) weights, and 1500rpm clutch springs.

I've bore witness to it a few times. I wonder if GB's extra 25cc's are helping a little.

Hate to Brake it to you, but they have the same caliper = same stopping power. Bigger disk only dissipates heat better Wink

You can do this with the stock brakes. Trust me.

Sort of. They're dealer mounted. I don't know if that means you get a stock exhaust, too. Smile

Smart dealers will have one "show model" with the pipe. All the others will have the stock pipe. Or at least half and half, depending on how people in their area are. Some folks might actually not want the pipe when they buy it. But they will later, lol.
