    Isn't it a great feeling when you do your first test drive on a newly built hack? You feel like a Wright brother or something.

    I too was amazed at how easy it was to ride my outfit. I had expected the lack of almost any sort of calculated adjustment to make it a death trap.

    It's been six months of refinements since and I expect it to continue for the foreseeable future. You will pry this rig from my cold, dead hands :D

    Karitoki,
    I have seen a couple of KZ1000Ps with a hack on them but for some reason they just don't look right to me.

    It made it to it's first rally this weekend and the rig and I both survived so I guess it's going to work.
