    the styling is really cookie cutter. it could be a cbr. or R1/6. or a GSXR. and 19k for an unknown. every bit of me hopes he makes good and kicks ass worldwide.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    Those front brakes are interesting. Doesn't seem fun to take the front wheel off.

    I have a 1125CR, the front brake takes some getting used too as there is next to no effort needed at normal driving speeds / will let you know what it's like taking the front wheel off when my new tires show up.

    My X1 requires removing the caliper to take off the wheel as well.

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

    Most modern 17" wheels require the calipers to come off. It's just odd taking it off the other way on a Buell.
    That's like, your opinion, man.
