Bike Show

Wasn't impressed with the bikes this yr. It was pretty much the same thing, although i thought the 1000's class was pretty sweet(Cbr,R1,Gsxr) and the ducati and agusa bike look bad ass. Besides that it was what you normally see at the bike show. I saw a good deal on some Efx Hids for 90 Bucks the set, lifetime warrenty on the bulbs and ballast. Anyone heard of this kit before? Is it a good deal ? Or is it the.. you get what you paid for scrap? As me and my friends are walking out we meet up with Jason Briton from Superbikes from speed Tv. Overall the show was okay, it's more for people that are interested in buying a new bike. You get good idea of what you'll be paying and good info from the reps, but that's just me. Go check it out and have fun. =)

Well i called the guy Eric from the both and he never answered his phone. Sometimes like people say " you get what you pay for" since he never got back to me. I got my HID's with the slim ballast from someone else. Hope the hid's work good for you.

They got me to suscribe to that Two Wheel Tuner mag a few years ago but it is all frickin' busas and ZX-14s. It started out kinda good with actual nice bike then went downhill to all stretched, chromed out, and 330 tires. So gay.....If I seen him I would have laughed and told him he is an editor for the shittiest magazine out there.

If you asked me about anything individually on that bike I would have to say not a fan. But when it is all put together that is one sweet bike. I would love to have a unique bike like that.

Then new CBR 1000RR stock exhaust looked like it weighed about 37 lbs! A must go after purchase.

I would like to hear a full system on that 1000RR, I bet it purrs enough to achieve wood with the exhaust being shortened to the mid-pipe area.
