holy batcave that is an abomination. Im not bashing you sir, but that is just plain ugly. I could live vvith buffeting, not the that screen form. The bike aesthetics should be kept to the rally style. And that ofcourse is my humble opinion.

But hey, you are riding and im not.

I am not concerned with what it looks like. If that was the case I would have got a Harley with the chrome and tassels hanging off the bars to pick up chicks
I should know better than to post this stuff here

reminds me of why I am a loner
the 950 makes a great lone rider bike

Cleaned what I thought was a blown fork seal, with some 35mm film.

No more "leak". Whoever thought that one up, I owe them a beer.

Sorry sir. As I were trying to say and failed miserably doing. It wasn't a personal attack. Just my opinion of twisting the bike to much. Which I actually shouldn't be doing since my bike is even more hacked up. As said in the last sentence, you win because you ride. Post it up

Regards
Mikael
