looks like a fighter too me...

Well, after my crash on Sept. 1, I finally got the bike up and running a couple weeks ago. fortunately, it runs perfectly, just needs a LOT of cosmetic work. I plan on getting some race plastics and using the small lamp I'm currently running cause my stock headlight got the mounting tabs totally ripped off. I also put some new Qualifiers on and have about 1000 miles on them so far. I'm also needing a new chain, so next paycheck, I plan on doing that, plus regearing for -1 in the front and +2 in the rear to bring out some torque. I dont need to go 165 mph anyway :-)

Before the crash. Damn she was hot...



the crash...



And now its present state...




The lesson learned...Don't ride outside your comfort zone. Do some trackdays, and get comfortable before you panic and make things worse.

Check out a website that is a new user's name. Moto-madness.com or something like that. There is a lot of streetfighter stuff.

Also I dont know how you feel about black, but if you made it ALL flat black that would be PIMP

flat black buddy. And I just saw you were from Tulsa. Man right after I left a few of you just started popping out of the wood work. We could have done some riding together. You meet up at 51 ST?

What happened with the 06? The one dealer here has an '06 with ugly @$$ front signals sticking way out. The stock? '05 flushmounts are much better.
