Work is boring and all I want to do is go out and ride.. I want to kick my supervisor in the teeth actually...

To make this post bike related:

I'm searching things on ebay to spiff it up.. Got any good ideas? So far I got the tank pad, black windscreen, fender elim kit, gel seat, i HAVE to find a nice pair of frame sliders (any good places, brands to get?). I wouldnt mind a nice pair of color matching grips and bar ends..

Just as an FYI: I've had TWO bikes that I've owned go down with the Motrax sliders on them.... one was my own dumb fault, the other I was in the process of selling my '03 to a kid that wrecked it just prior to paying me the $$$....

ANYWAY... the first bike, 929RR, lowsided into a 15mph turn with REALLY tall grass.. spun around a couple times and was next to perfect when I stood her back up.
The second, R1, touched the ass-end on the asphalt as "genius" decided to tip her back a little too far... once the bike went airborne and subsequently end-over-end-over-end @ about 90mph, it finally came down perpendicular to the pavement and drove the slider directly into the engine thru the frame.... [bad bad]...

All in all, I would say they are a great set of low-cost insurance for what they will do, unless you wreck with the bike flipping thru the air at almost 100mph, I would say they are an asset.... but, chances are if your bike is going nose-to-tail, you're probably going to total it anyway.

After you ebay yourself all those items, get some brake lines, too.

And post some pics of that sweet ride in the 750 section, pronto!

Dude a CF pipe on that is going to look so nasty. Not sure if I like the tri-oval, is that the RS-3? But CF still going to look sweet on that color Gixxer.
