Woah, I just noticed the yellow tires ^^

Thought I'd share this photo I bought from Killboy, of myself this past year on my first Dragon visit.

Only on a Gixxer would you see yellow tires, and think, "hey thats not so bad..."

Banjoboy I think it's the generation prior to the '04 revamp. Looks to be a '99-03 to me. I was looking them up the other day thinking about getting one to convert into some twisted naked sport-tourer. They are dirt cheap by me.


obligatory pic.



Local rider going nuts at a stunt show near me. After the 'professional' stunt rider was doing the basic wheelies and stoppies and stuff on his fancy bike, the locals did their thing. This dude was by far the most skilled. Drifting around like a boss.
