Greatwhite, with all of the RC-51 parts on your bike, is there a reason that you didn't just have steering stem custom machined and add the entire RC-51 front end?

good thing it was not made for you then. I happen to dig the streetfighter look. and as a brilliant mechanic told me years ago, there is an ass for every seat.

i didnt say it would not be awesome to ride, because i bet it sure as hell is, and i do like streetfighters.


however, the look is not right.


it would look better if the tail section was dropped lower, and slightly extended, and if the exhaust was kinked a little bit more and had a lower height. the lines would then be cleaned up, and it would look much better.

btw, the comment, "an ass for every seat," is not complimentary, its derogatory, and the term is generally used to signify poor taste, or bad design. at my shop, i currently have 3 L1 master techs, 2 A techs, 2 C techs, and 2 general service peeps under my control. the first 5 techs are brilliant mechanics, and i have heard the same comment from them many times, always in regards to a vehicle that would otherwise be pretty respectable, minus some questionable mods or styling. what that comment means, is... not an ass in a seat (a rider), it refers to a 'jackass, or an idiot.' it is not a friendly comment.

Just meant that every one has a ride, no offense was intended and I implied my ass would have a hell of a time in that seat, I love that look, personally, I would mute the colors and not go for a polished frame, but it was not made for me

Looks like a heavily modified Landrover LWB with Cab and pickup section.

Should be plenty available, mods to your discretion

new to ADV but...

I'm new to the ADV forum, but I've been following (http://raresportbikesforsale.com/) for a while and thought this thread would be a nice place to plug it. If you need a titled CA 2-stroke RZ350 or Bimota race bike, try there.

But, from reading this thread it looks like alot of you like the ZRX, so here is one for you, with lots of go fast bits:

(http://raresportbikesforsale.com/a-m...saki-zrx1200r/)



Where is that drool smiley thing?
