Guess I don't measure up because I don't use it like a four wheeler in a slough.
And apparently it has reverse too ( old joke, couldn't resist)

seriously I just wish my bikes would travel forward.

I know you boys like shiny paint and fast bikes

Put on my "cheap" GSXR decals (you don't wont to know how much the ones that came on the bike cost), race numbers and the sticker fairy came by to visit. Stickers actually serve a purpose besides getting contingency money using their product, they keep the paint from getting chipped.

I still have to add some race tires and I have the CRG shorty brake and clutch levers coming in black of course with GOLD adjustment clickers.

I'd love to go rip a mountain road up with this thing, piss off some folks and just have a blast. Not gonna happen, it's track bound in 8 weeks.

CRG black shorty levers with gold clickers added to the 1000

Don't do anything but make the ride easier on the hands and the adjustability on the fly helps when the front brake begins to over heat and fade. Not much an issue on cutch side but stil nice to have. They also are less vulnerable in a crash.

Brake


Clutch
