    First I need to say thanks to James a million and a half times for giving me the oportunity to have this bike
    ans also for not ussing a Jujitsu trick after he give me the key ,,,
    he is wonderful and was really sad about it,actually i feel a little strange my self,,,but what can I do..
    well for now i will ride the hell out of the Beautyful orange Monster

    San francisco california,,,
    twin peaks more or less the tallest place in the whole city,more or less as pretty of a city as you can find in this country
    [​IMG]

    Actually I think I found the perfect name for the 950 Forum,,at leats a good candidate,,
    the same name as this little mountain
    Twin Peak's,,since the 950 is a V-twin and more or less the Highest peak of current design

    Much more to come,,I'm being more or less Bikeless for the last 5 weeks and I need to get use to the big wheels again:ricky

    In respect to james I'm going to try to keep them as "Normal" looking as I can so everything will look similar to stock even if is very diferent,,,,
    Basically i'm going to use the bike as a product development platform and everything needs to be "great Looking" and contribute to the overall shape and Image of the machine.
    On the other hand I can not promise about the scratches and about the Mud at least for the front I have it "Cover"
    with the MAMF MudGuard...

    will see I will Install a "Half ass" Naca windscreen(not culminated) this very morning and then finish it when the days go by

    Oh Man Up there was so Cold and Windy,but my heart and Body was so warm and exited,did not really matter..
    I love this kind of Energy,,is so powerful, so clean the only problem is that is like being on "Nitrus" and does not last for ever,,well exept when I'm desinging stuff in that case I can stay on the "Trance" for a long long time...
