Thanks, guys!

It's the stock Showa fork with some Race Tech springs and the Ohlins valve kits. The rear spring is also Ohlins (the Showa was too soft and we had bad luck getting rate info on a Showa replacement) and the shock was revalved. All work was done by Ben Brace & Jayson Lubben here locally in Atlanta.

And the steering damper was upgraded from the stocker to the Ohlins from an S model.

Yep. I am hopeful that we'll be able to anodize the fork tubes, top triple clamp and clip-ons black this winter. That should look pretty slick with the nitride fork lowers. Or so I hope.

rnh, what's with the "Police" lettering? I'd ride that for work everyday! I don't see any light package though.......

Is it just for effect with the custom black/white paint?

Isn't it highly illegal to do that if you're not actually a cop? Something like a felony for impersonating a police officer?

My first


After loving her for 5 years, I let my buddy ride her, he killed her going to the races.

My second



she died on Mt. Lemmon on a December evening. Ice...


My current



I love the 90's Supersports. Big fun and great styling for very little money. Too bad parts are becoming a problem...

Nice! Here's the latest of mine. Just got her out of the shop (snapped head stud, ouch!) and a set of freshly restored unobtanium Marvic Superlight magnesium/aluminum 2-pc. wheels.

Something about yellow Ducatis I've always loved!!

Maybe it was those 900SS Superlights back in the 90's. Anyways, this thing looks great!!
