My dealer has asked me for a pic of my new one for his social media account too. You've given me an idea!

PS. Congrats on the new steed. Have you taken her out yet?

I have taken it out for some road work to check jetting in the Phoenix heat (rich, the way I like it). And for some very light trail work to give me a feel for the motor (smooth), clutch (nice), brakes (firm and modulatable), and suspension (Good and in the ballpark).

All of it is working fine.

Funny thing, the carb is jetted very fat, and yet, no spoooge. Lemme check...

Nope. (Photo attached). Left is new Turbine Core (spark arrestor) with 15-minutes on it. Right is the old Power Core plenty of time on it. Neither have been cleaned. Zero spooge. Exhaust stops smoking soon after a quick warm up.

So, given the power (already more than I need), the zero spooge at fat jetting, I'm at a loss. Normally I would head straight to the moto machine shop and have them mod the squish and combustion chamber. I don't think I'm going to be in a rush to do that now.

Edit: Dang photos are upsidedown again.

If you want a promo photo, this is from Neil, one of the gang at Moto Center.

Seems his girlfriend caught him spooning with his Spanish Mistress.

A particularly naughty GP300. All blinged out like she's going to the Senior Prom.

While I'm at it... a few months ago I was trying to find photos of the 2018 sans plastics (Nekkid). Here is my effort in that regard. If this forum flips the photos upside down again, I'll poop my pants.

What exactly does it feel like to poop your pants?

Almost the same feeling you get looking at upside down photos on the internet...
