When was the last time the Good Reverend posted anything at all?

Yeah, but the chips to the bare metal are easy to cover up with electrical tape

The 1000 mega SBK is progressing

Ohlins 30 mil up front. This is jewelry in my world.


JRi rear shock, this is a super nice quality piece. Extremely light.


The bodywork is done and ready to have decals, numbers and product stickers added. Klrcaptain and Hybrid10 did an outstanding job on it.



About 8 more weeks I'll shake her down at Talladega GP. I still have things to do, remove antifreeze, bleed front brakes one more time, add some DOT race Michelins, lose a few pounds and tone up the old body. This big 1000 is a handful at track speed.

Real tires added to the GSXR750

Michelin Pilot Powers. Oem slickstones had to go after only 15 miles!!

My installer Klrcaptain hard at work, my right wrist is acting up again so I had to call in reinforcements.

I'm guessing your wife has carte blanche in jewelry stores as well.

Bodywork painted real pretty and on

Once you go black you never go back

Decals, stickers and numbers after the paint cures a little longer.

I've rode it places the local ones would not have went. Straight up the side of mountains that were just 13,000'.

Guess I don't measure up because I don't use it like a four wheeler in a slough.
