Ah, over the past year/12,000 miles we have had some good times and bad times together. You may have noticed the "S" distinction and thinking "where is the upper?" Well, that was the first time I put her down. We had just saw some guy wreck and it killed my confidence (n00b mistake). I thought I was going in too hot and got on the brakes. Grass and lean angle don't play nicely. That is when the upper was cracked.
The second time, I lowsided while following a friend on his race bike. My footpeg scraped and unloaded the, then stock, rear suspension. This is never a good thing.
The third and hopefully last, although not likely, was a couple of weeks ago. I was riding the Gap in the rain. Another lowside, another dollar.
The list of modifications will probably end very soon, after I get these Buell Lightning headlights on. Anyway:
Rear Seat Cowl
Woodcraft Frame Sliders
Vortex Adjustible Rear Sets
14 tooth front/45 T rear
'94 GSXR Rear wheel (5.5 wide for 180 tire)
Galfer sportbike rear line
Galfer Superbike Front Lines
Full Yoshimura TRS Carbon Race Exhaust
Penske 8981 Rear Shock
Traxxion AK 20 Cartridge kit with external adjustible fork caps
Without further adieu, here are some sexy pics.
The first picture is a shot of my chin spoiler from my last little incident. In the bottom right, you can also see the rash on the tail.
This next shot is after my attempt of color matching the stock paint. It's a 10 dollar paint job.

And the arse
OH HELLO THAR!
Almost ready to go play again thanks to the plethora of tools in my big, red box.
I have decided to affectionately name her "Linda" after the Linda in Slingblade. She was always getting a beaten from Dwight Yoakum, and well, I just think it fits for obvious reasons.
