You sure it's real CF? A lot of the crap I have seen is simulated CF. Kudos to you if it is genuine.

Thanks guys and yeah Mao, the guy who I referenced (Stephano) is all about Ducati - He has a few of them and he imports Custom Parts for aftermarket guys like shift tech

he would not lead me astray

Yeah but they cost just as much as the Arai I want - Shit, come to think of it, I need to spend over $500.00 to get my bike legal with the state and all - Maybe I should do that first??????


NAAAAAAAAH - MORE CARBON!

And thanks for reminding, I need to get the rear wheel hugger... Ducati is too fucking cheap to bolt it on a 14K bike.

Yeah, the Busa Plates expired back in June and I need to pay the out of state tax to make the Duc legal

We still need a bike swap bro - Was that yours at Strats last week - If so, I was the cat in the Pink Floyd t-shirt (comments not needed Rick) with a chubby looking at your bike with Sexy Time eyes

Yes, was me, one of these day the bike swap will happen. I usually work nights and weekends so it's difficult for me to get ride time in. I may be off of work next week for some much need R&R + riding.
