    Is that what they call a ‘sleeper’ in bike terms?

    Camo disguise to throw off those who don’t know what beats in it’s heart!!

    .....I may have painted it to hide the fact it had different coloured panels i think....and of course the fact that i do like a good camo paint job. It originally also sported the shark mouth like a P40 on the front as well. As if the bike wasn't intimidating enough as it was :)

    G'day @OldDog, the bike never missed a beat all week. My cousin who has @MymoJoe's bike was on the ride as well. Both bikes impressed the hell out of all the other boys on the ride. The suspension on both these bikes is awesome. We could hit shit like we were on enduro bikes. I rode a 790 with the tall seat. Nice motor but I wasn't impressed with the rest of it. Too cramped and small. Suspension was just ok. Would be a good bike for short blokes.
    Have you got any pics of the shark mouth? I was thinking of putting my old squadron's stallion on the side but the shark mouth might go alright.

    All i can find is this early mock up, hope it helps. Glad the big beasty is serving you well mate. The guy that built that suspension is pretty gifted at getting the best out of WPs.

    I haven't had WP's set up by him but several other bikes and my exp is his work has been poor to outright incompetent cut springs from a different model bike that suffered coil bind
    What his is very gifted at is upselling ( SUPER SIZE) you anything he can to increase his profit margin and in my exp to the detriment to the performance of the suspension i have a very expensive box of bits that were removed by another tuner with excellent results just left very out of pocket

    but if you've had good exp that great

    Struth! Well ive had two sets done by him and they have been done well and without fault. Haven't dealt with him since probably 2016 so maybe things have changed.

    I have some steg pegz that autostream gave me. Never got around to fitting them.
    I've never riden a bike with them so not experienced the hype. Worth it?
