Matt needs a 12 o'clock bar and he would be gold. Gus has a few of those and they look like a blast to ride.

Don't hate, I'll take that bike and ride circles around you... on one wheel.

I like to drink beer, smoke weed, and ride my 50.

Take it to the STREETS!

The reason for my SuMo love is that it takes me back to my roots - Wide bars - Tons of Trqe - Low top end - I never really felt 100% comfy on a Sport Bike with the exception of my Busa in full tuck at 180mph going straight - Then, I got the SuperDuke and it all just came back to me - I have zero desire to ever ride a sportbike again

If my math is right?LOL

I'm a few yrs your sr.

Had several of the fastest bikes available through the 80's and I also left them behind when I bought my Xr650R and plated it.

I own 20 bikes or more and the only two plates I have are for XR650's
