    I like the seat design also. Very nice bike.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    Very nice looking bike, I'm slowly working on one of my own. Do you have any pictures of the other side?
    What performance mods have you made? Any engine or suspension work?

    Yes I've replaced the old suspension for suspension of an R6 from 2003 (adjustable)

    You Euro guys do some pretty good work. I love the paint - reminds me of the old yamaha race colors back when I raced - white base with red and black stripes. My racer was painted the same only the stripes ran on the tank sides.

    Really, very nice work. I LOVE the double shift linkage, especially the decreased throw you've engineered in. I WILL steal...I mean borrow that idea.
    The rear shock looks like the stock unit which actually isn't bad, but kind of short. Did you relocate the top mount?
    Thanks for the pictures, I like your bike very much.

    Awesome work and looking!!

    12 cm lower frontend? Still got some space underneath the engine???

    I lowered about 6 cm and am nervous about our bad street conditions already...

    It might look easy when you look at me... But it took years of effort to become the mess that you see!
