    my first thought was "must be down under"...no way we would feature a rider doing stunts on wrong side of the road....
  2. when was this taken? leaves are looking good.
  3. sorry, mine were on bike when i got it.
  4. 6'2" here with silver 2003. have BLS blocks, heli bars and sargent seat. ALL are excellent choices and make the bike very comfortable for me. a smaller individual got on and said "wow...sort of like a couch" :)
  5. Thank you for your answer. I'm a little hesitant to use so stiff a rear shock, since roads around here are often quite rough. I guess I'll stick to 0.95 front and 19.3 rear, and maybe play with a rider-sag a bit more than 3.5 (if I can't get a decent static-sag). Does this sound reasonable? Also: Other than from RaceTech, do you know where I could find fork-springs at this rate? Do you know if Ohlins or WP have such fork-springs (suitable for the VFR)? I'm trying to locate a supplier that has good representation somewhere in the EU (or even-better locally, I live in Athens / Greece). comp/rebound will impact things more than anything with your bumps. the rate is necessary for your weight and to get proper sag geometry for handling. do what you will, but my suggestion is at least the 20kg spring.

    wow....what a awesome photo!
  7. been on that bridge many times. nice photo!
  8. i have it. it is exactly what you think it is....cheap, with crappy mounts. mine is still in the box. i would sell it to you cheap. it will work and if you cant afford new and are willing to move mounts, redrill, etc, it would be fine. i expected something close to the honda stuff and it is NOT that. again, not saying it wont work or doesnt look cool. just not what i wanted. Which specific kit do you have? i have the white black livery
