You should definitely get one sooner than later.. these prices are skyrocketing!

I had originally wanted either a 2006 Black SC or a Paul Smart (God damn those beautiful stock Ohlins -- and that fairing ) but I could never find one. Took over a year of searching to get my SE.

Just to fuck with you. Worthing Classics CF fairing kit on a PS.

The bike is good from far, and far from good, runs great, photos make it look much better than it actually is

Sold my VFR for a 929. Old bikes are just too much to maintain.

I prefer the look of the VFR over the 929 to be honest. But the problem was that the bike spent more time in the shop than on the road. I prefer the reliability, 150hp, and performance of the 929 so I need to make look pretty.

So on Sunday, a few of us decided to cruise around fort langley, mission, abbotsford, mission, chilliwack, Harrison, hope and back. The weather didn't co operate with us. Drizzles turned into 5 minute down pores, then sun then rain and so on. But when we got back to surrey it was sunny as hell and hot to boot! I didn't take a before pic, but it took me a good 2 hours to wash every little nook and cranny of my gixxer. I HATE riding in the rain

Started from the bottom ... a previously wrecked 2006 Daytona 675 in Graphite transformed into an overhauled 2009+ bodied Daytona 675 bathed in fresh parts.

It's fairly rampant with the FZ-09, tons of people having them fail I can't believe it hasn't been an official recall yet. Mine is starting to tick a bit, I'm going to set it and put in a set screw to keep it from backing out to far.

God I hate the headlight on this bike. ^_^

I think I will paint the whole thing black soon and the wheels teal or purple.
