    That doesn't mean they are cool, tex.

    Joe, we are just going to have to agree to disagree. The angle between front and back doesn't lend itself well to anything with a normal frame and engine layout.
    Just my opinion.

    I am a supporter of the cx500 tank on anything other than a cx500. But it isn't bolt on.

    Still not a fan, joe.

    I hope you aren't implying that I don't help people 'round here.
