First ride, Duke

First ride, Duke

First off, sorry to all the people in Japan, the force of that Tsunami was mind blowing. Not much to be said really. Nature is humbling.

Back in Salzburg I finally got my bike on the road and man am I happy with it. The sun was shining, it wasn’t too cold and the roads were empty so we drove up to the local ski resort and back at lunch taking it really easy on the bends.


The Remus pipe on my friends Duke R sounds incredible. Torn between that or the SC systems one which I reckon looks better.

    It’s tough to beat the sound of a Remus, but that SC kit leaves a lot more ground clearance which I know I’d like.

    Can you afford the akro?
    The underslung systems look so much nicer leaving a clean rear end.

    Na, AKro is way too expensive man. Lot of diapers for an akro. I kind of like the sidepipe too. More MX style and more ground clearance would be good. Although yea the rear does look clean with the under pipe… hmm..

    It looks like a great first ride, P!

    Keep it underslung but a nicer looking than the Remus is my comment.

    Any new Bikensteins in the pipeline?

    Cheers, Marcus

    Hi MArcus, I didnt start any yet but would like to maybe do a duke at some point.

    I got to think of this exhaust for underslung placement.
    I think it is the right one of a Zard exhaust for Duc 1098 or something. It look great though.

    Hope to see more crazy Bikensteins soon. Maybe MP can amaze us again?

    Cheers, Marcus
