This is starting to make me wonder if i shouldn't be looking for a good, light used twin like the Ducati (but not a Ducati) and converting it, rather than buying a 650GS which I know I'll wreck with some foolish antics of some kind.

All I want in this world is a nice, 300-350lb 400-500cc twin with no more than a 32" saddle, yet with *reasonable* suspension and clearance. Is that really too much to ask? The Ducati conversion looks close, though.

Thanks for the complements guys. I have added luggage since I posted the original photos.












I mounted the weather proof boxes to a set of brackets I made like this but dont intend on making anymore for a while:

I also added a newer GPS.







I have a few other things I want to add to the Nighthawk but those will be winter projects.

If I remember correctly, the front springs were around $70 and the rear shocks were close to $400.

if i was residing at your part of the world, i'd make a trip over to your garage to rape the nighthawk you have... its such a beauty!

thanks for the info.. at the place i'm in, only the 250cc only are aplenty. the 750s sorta disappeared!

the terra mostro is obviously kick ass - but OMFG that nighthawk and 919 are outrageous and while both are very cool, the 919 gets my vote and is absolutely stunning!!
