My bro makes Killboy.com front page...

It's about halfway down the page with the caption "That's about all she's got captain." He is doing the Kat bunch proud. He is a lot more crazy than me, I am still not up to scrapping the **** out of my pegs and pipe.

Sweet! Is that his peg or his pipe? A high mount and adjustable rear sets seem to be in order here.

He'd proly feel more comfy if he hung off more. I couldn't imagine leaning that far without shifting my body at all. But whatever.

He wants to get rid of it, but can't afford to step up yet. It's not a question of skill, but money for him. He doesn't really want to sink more money into that bike for that reason. Rather save and get a used gixxer.

Yeah, it seems his skill exceeds his bike. you should tell him it's OK to hang off the bike more though.

yeah a kat is an I4. He wants to upgrade to a gixxer 750 or greater. He settled for the kat and he doesnt want to get something he is uphappy with again.
