I just recently tried the 07 out on The Dragon. It's big fun on that road. I did scrape the pegs a good bit and that was with the rear preload set on the number five (out of nine) position. After I got home I cranked it on up to the 7th position so I'm anxious to see if that helps. But this bike was big fun, especially in the quick succession second gear corners. With all that engine braking I could just roll off the throttle coming into a corner and then whack it open and the front would get real light, sometimes coming off the ground and other times just light enough that the handlebars would cross up for a moment. This motorcycle was made for roads like this. Here it is pictured at the overlook on U.S. 129 Deals Gap.
