Wow... I can hear the axe grinding from here. :huh So, TT was able to do this 5 years ago, using bolt-ons. Your right, there is no way it could be done now. Chill out dude... drop your ass on one when it shows up and make your call then. Unlike alot of bikes out there, when it hits the dealers floor you can take it for a spin to your local truck scale and declare loudly "I was right! It weighs 260 pounds with less then a gallon of gas!"
