The only "parts" he dragging are his boots.

Only the seat side panels are white - the top is black.
I think the white tank looks OK, provided the OEM paint was beyond help.

PFFFFTTTT....amateur, and I DO hang off. So short now, rubber will not stay on.



Most from track riding, that kind of lean angle on the street is not something I generally do.

I made some delrin peg sliders for my Husky, I kept wearing the pegs down.

My shifter's a lot higher, relatively, than it would be on a bike with rearsets, if it scrubs, I've probably already come off

And lo, he compromised with Atgmott, and verily she conceived,
and did bear a son, Notgatt. And Notgatt roamed naked,
and did bequeath his skin to the roads. And he was a wild ass and an outcast,
and was hated through all the land. And his forehead was branded, and he did be
come a sign and a warning to all the people."
