Not much of a picture but under the tool bag on the front forks is a black SuperBrace.
I voted but not for myself of course.....I already have a SuperBrace. So what would I do with another? Sell it? NO!!! It should go to someone who really needs one. Now that covers pretty much everyone that has a Sporty. These braces are great, I love mine. What a difference it has made in stability....absolutely amazing.

A vote for you fellow broke student. I can't really see a point in putting a fork brace on over 1/2 the bikes that entered.

4,5: hardtail, raked out chops (handling not a priority)
6: I'd swear that nightster already has a fork brace in the pic
8: hardtail (handling not a priority)
9: struts (handling not a priority)

I think you meant to vote for bike #2 not #3.

The last time a Sporty with Ohlins shocks and progressive front suspension tried to hang with me on twisties HE wound up in a ditch and I wasn't even trying.
This isn't the place for that debate, but a superbrace helps stabilize the front end, not the back so any bike with a front end could DEFINATELY benefit from one!

I already have the SuperBrace, so I'll vote for someone else, probably #3 (broke student) but if I could get a wash job...lol...
Have a good one...Tater...

Why vote for a broke student that probably can't afford to spend money on buying gas to ride the bike?
We might as well vote for someone that can actually use the brace


OK, serious now. I must say all bikes look great. Makes it hard to vote for just one!
