With the weather finally breaking for the good up here in N.E. Pennsylvania ... I have been able to log some real miles , just over 500 so far , on the updated 116 SC Hammer ....formerly known as 'Da-Pope'

1st off ....the bike has now earned a new name. From here on out , it will referred to as ,

'David Copperfield ....the Pavement Magician '

I will let that sink in a bit ........

This bike is fast. ...very fast..... and not the sneak up on you fast.
If you attempt to whack the throttle WOT , and are not fully prepared....this bike will punch you in the face , knock you out ala Mike Tyson .... then wake you up hopefully b4 you run into the back of something not moving quite as fast.

Pavement simply disppears .
Objects in your mirror become real small at a very quick pace.
Objects in front of you appear real quickly.
You need to be prepared to slow down ....all the time.

Now ..... last year's version was no slouch by any means .... and I spent a full season , 10k miles with it.....

.......but this version feels like I was riding with a large passenger all last year....and now I'm not.

Good times ahead.

Here is what I had done for the new season:

Larger SC pulley ..... makes more boost , roughly upto 14psi
New exhaust .... RPW Big Slash out .... Conquest Customs GPder's in.
New injectors ... don't know which ... Lloyd is a secretive bugger...
Re-tune by Lloyd.
Fresh rubber rear and front.
Fresh brake pads rear and front.
new rear composite rotor ( previous one disintegrated ...don't ask )
changed out hammer foot controls , for Judge mid controls.

Dear @Squatch ,

Your duly noted posts on kickin the Pope's (@PJRo ) tail was read and vetted across the VOG. The quote is "At 135 torques and 143 ponies I can smoke Da Pope off the line and thru 100... a roll on not so much I get creamed." I think he formally accepts your challenge.
