Default Finally got some decent pics (picture heavy)












but all is far from roses.... 5 minutes after taking these I hit gravel in a sloped parking lot and dumped her hard. That's another thread

I avoid ALL gravel..it'll conquer your bike..I will go out of my way to avoid gravel, even if stung riding...the fairing just needs a little rubbing out and a fresh coat of wax...seriously...on a lighter note...I know many inexperienced riders who have dumped their bikes in gravel only once...

Didn't see it. Can't swear that's what it was but expect so.

No... seek out gravel, get sideways in it, roll in it, roost your buddy with it, dig a pit and BBQ a pig.

Dirt and gravel are what life is all about. It's called the "nitty gritty of life".

Conquer your fear, ride dirt, and grin from ear to ear as you pass old women slowing down for it.

Nice looking Bike, not over done, just very nice. I hardly ever see another Sporty when I go somewhere, hordes of Baggers and Big Twins but no Sporty's. I like to think the Sporty's are out being ridden but I sure don't see em.

Thanks. Mostly big twins here too, windshields and floorboards, not my thing.

Lol@ just needing rubbed out. The gouges closest to the plex are down to the glass. It could be metal, but it looks like some chunks are missing. Still not too hard to fix tho, so no worries. A little kitty hair, glass mat, and resin.

Gravel/dirt roads can be fun, a patch of gravel on pavement usually isn't.
