    That brake fluid res is ridiculous. Thats a really bad idea for a location.
    I hope it does not leak or you will be buying a new guage for $3789.95
    along with a $64 t-shirt. I would never own such a spendy bike.
    These exotics are nice but if you cannot buy cheap used parts on ebay I am out. I will stay with Honda VFR800, cheap and reliable, great bike overall.

    Cable clutch on a Hyper is something new. Either way , it's at the top of my list. I want to wait and see until the Nuda comes out.

    Need to sell off some bikes before anything happens.

    Nuda is not coming to the US. I believe it will even be discontinued overseas.





    I'll stick with my original choice and stay Italian.

    I sat on a couple a couple Harleys at the show. I really gotta ask, WTF is with the world worst feeling clutch? If it were on a 4,000$ bike I'd say it wasn't terrible, but on bikes that are over 30,000$. It's not like the technology isn't out there to reduce that. It's not like the bikes are putting out that much HP\Torque that they need a clutch that tough & crappy feeling.

    Fill me in here, cause I'm at a loss.


    Oh, and what's with all the shlubs on the custom bikes removing the front brake? I suppose the bike is just to look at huh? :lol3

    Be careful at a stop light.
    One of these popular brand riders could not stop at a red light when I could quite easily. He about rear ended me bigtime...went skidding along in the median as an escape route with rear brake locked and about ended up in middle of intersection.
    I talked with the rider as I wanted to know what the deal was.
    He was taught to NEVER use the front brake, rear brake only. WTF? :eek1

    They teach that at the TTC too. Front brakes just get you into trouble.

    Wtf.... I almost never use the rear brake...... Then again i come from extreme mtb, where you dont want to skid down the mountain...you want controlled descent..... Easily atained with a front brake....

    I just rode the YZ on my iced street. Rode up the hill, track stand in the middle of the road......no front brake. Rode back into my garage.

    Come on over, there's 8" of chopped up slush on top of frozen grass from me railing around on the quad yesterday, I broke the shift lever off in my hand being a retard, good thing I work for a welding company.


    On a lighter note, there's bout 3 weeks left of this frozen stuff, teh 450 real close to ready status, should be ridable stuff south of here, FredBud is a hoot and 2 hours away, sure Fred will open up as soon as the weather breaks and there's always FVOR. :D
