After riding it around a bit, I think I will stay with the fwd controls. I can say that this thing is about the best set up sporty I have ever bought, it has a front end that works great and that 16 inch tire makes it very flickable. I like it more each time I take it out. I have blacked out the engine, blacked out a few other bits on it and am shopping a stage one setup to get those few extra ponies I think it needs. Besides that she is sweet.

I do have to say my buddies think the tanks is way to small but I just keep pointing out how cool it looks on the bike, the entire fat fromt end with the peanut tank is just killer in looks.

Hanging my head in shame.
The 48 is sitting covered and ignored.
But i did go for a ride on the Roadster, so happy to have a Sporty to get a little therapy...
