Looks to be of roughly identical performance as with the Omega, and with less parts. But I do like the advantages of a brushless system. So which is the "better" system overall?
This is a nice place to get some info on caomparing the two aftermarket Airhead systems.

I got photos of the paint yesterday. It's beautiful. The pinstriping is getting done today and it'll get shipped to me on Monday.



And I didn't do jack last night. We went to dinner with Jarvis and got home kinda late.

Wow, Dave, that bike is really going to be incredibly beautiful! You should ride it up to the 49'er this year. I'll park my R90 next to it so people can compare just how good and how bad things can be.

Oh man!!! You are going to screw around posting pics of paint like that and convince me to paint my red ST pearl white - just like the first one I test rode.

That is some beautiful paintwork. The pearl looks really deep on my monitor - something I don't often notice in pictures.

Why is there on the picture?

Oh, that's just BiggerAl and Putts showing their love.

Nice paint, kbasa.

Paint looks fantastic ! Can't wait to see the stripes on it.

Is he going to do the inside of the fairing in a flat black to cut down on reflection ?

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.
