Where are aftermarket brake lines and springs?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I ride it. Then I ride it some more. That's my favorite mod for a new bike.

I do not see adding a PCIII or sliding the fork tubes up to compensate.

Usually my first bike mod it to fix something I broke.

When I bought my bike they gave me a $500 in store credit. So, I bought riding gear (boots, gloves, and jacket) and then the fender eliminator. Then I took the MSF course and rode my ass off all that summer.

saddle bags, GPS, new jacket, heated grips etc

or just put it on the track for a few seasons then tear it down and do a complete rebuild replacing every last bolt and powdercoating everything




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
