That one is actually very nice. BTW, I have just realized that it is kinda similar to Speed Triple in appearance.

I wouldn't go *That* far...but that is one hot bike. And I bet most people would have no idea what that was if you didn't tell them. AWSOME!

Yep, those Triumphs are rounder in design whereas the BKing is nothing but angles.

You are to blame for all of this shenanigans Cheyenne, but it sounds REAL nice and about 15 pounds lighter I am hoping to get it Wednesday night

Thanks for the good work Ken! It was good taking that other bike off your hands as well haha!

FYI, here are B-king pics BEFORE the exhaust mod. Note the dramatic rear-end difference.

Oh man, that bike soo needed new pipes. World of difference, looks good! My question is, what size is that rear tire in chiperf's pics? Looks like a 170 or 180.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I dunno yet. The old one sucked - this one HAS to be better. It came with the Yoshi fender eliminator kit. If we go on a ride and I could manage to get in front of you (NOT) you can tell me

I think those are 180 actually. They were talking about a LARGER tirer, but this bike was only made for 2008 and will never be made again so it is what it is

So yea let me take it for a month to help with that

There is a stud left over, but I will replace it with a normal looking bolt.

The 916 would have been a poser bike for me, in reality. I can't quite spend money on that kind of bike at the moment. Though it might be a possibility still if you have it by the end of the year I realised that I really didn't have a 1k bike that I could rail around with. Now I do
