Hey guys (and girls), I am new to the site and a newbie to Caddys. Not new to web forums although I still don't get internet humor??? Just bought an '05 EXT with everything but the rear entertainment system. Already tried to play a movie through the nav system...that didn't work! I have spent the better part of this week checking out the site for info and have found a few answers. Sure I will still have plenty of questions for you guys. Just wanted to say "hi", introduce myself and show off just a couple of pictures. Here is the new ride:

Came with the grill, the rest is completely stock.

Thanks guys! I sure will miss those toys, but finishing grad school means having to finally grow up I guess. Look forward to getting to know you all.

And I am open to suggestions on personalizing the EXT...

Welcome to the club bro, nice caddy, rim that baby up and ride out. Love the R1 too, I had an 04 once. I'd love to smoke you on the 1 with my current MV Agusta F41000S :thumbsup:

Thanks for the welcome! A MV Aguasta would be a sweet bike to have, congrats on that! My next one will be probably be an Aprilla.

Turbo busa is sick for sure but tell that is all for show!!! Seriously...how often you really need to go 200+ mph??? But I guess there isn't much difference in the 186 mph I could do on the R1 and 200+.

I will never, well I never say never, go 200 on a bike, have been over 200 twice while living in Switzerland with my boss going to Germany, but that was a car. Without tune it pulled 252 rwhp and it was pretty rich, gets tuned tomorrow, of course my Ski-Doo 800 has 193 hp, my wife did 141 on radar on the lake 3 weeks ago, 4 mph faster than me, of course when you weigh less than 100 lbs that helps.

I've done 150 in my formula and only a bit more on the R1, maybe into the 160s. There is no reason one needs to go that fast...unless you happen to be on the Autobaun. Or 140 on a Ski-Doo!!!
