I got my mojo workin'....!
Finally after waiting 6 weeks for nice weather, the mojo is back on the streets.
And boy is it workin'... it has surpassed my expectations by far!
This is one sweet neutral and fast ride. The Lauterwasser bars give me a really nice sporty but not to uncomfortable position with good control over the bike.
So far I'm quite happy with the position on the bike, very centered and nice around the corners. On very fast tight corners I haven't pushed the tires to their max yet, but it seems all well. All in all much better then expected. Some impressions:
If the mojo continues to impress on longer rides, I might go the full distance and have track ends soldered in during next off season...

To finish this off, I'm looking for a chromed Tange Durango or Big Fork. A Koski Dura Trac would be even better but probably unobtainium in 1 1/8" and long steerer (210mm threaded).
