you know, i think the lowering link is out. its a damn sight higher than it looks in those photos, it's got different plastic, a bigger tank, a new muffler, and some other stuff. I reckanized it from the lic. plate. It runs great, no problems yet, i got it at 14k miles and i've put on another 1k as a commuter bike. Eventually it's going to brazil tho.


Finish that RR yo!
