You Da Man Japexican! LoL

Bike looks killer, I know what you mean about the bars. Can't pull them back past vertical without killing the look. Zombie does killer bars... I donno about rabbit ears, but won't know until you get em' on.

And f*Ēk hard tailing it... You wanna ride it like you stole it.

Pick up a cheap XS and hard tail it, if you really want a sweet rigid.

Here's my old XS before it was done. I sold to get my sporty, sick of riding like a b!tch.

Did they fit the stock mounts or did you have to modify them?

New bars from Special79, they 18" wide. I love 'em







Grinded the lip off the factory controls, I'll paint them sometime.

Went to a bike show this weekend at a drag strip. They had some grudge matches so I said why not, lets see what the 48 can do in a quarter mile. What a blast! I averaged 12.8 seconds @ 104 mph. My fastest run was 12.4 seconds @106 mph. I smoked a few V-rods, a 1900cc Yamaha, and tons of bagger's. Only lost 1 race to a crotch rocket. Plus took 1st place in the bike show! What a great weekend!

Sounds like a good weekend!

What performance mods have you done? Those are pretty impressive times!

Haven't really put it to the test for which wrap is better for keeping heat in...but so far the heat is less than the fiberglass. Could be mind over heat wrap though. All I know it is a hell of a lot easier than putting on fiberglass wrap. Umm...oh...had some paint left over so I painted a matching helmet! This weekend I'll try to put a video out.
"Japexican", I'm guessing you are half Japenese/ half Mexican? I LOLed at the panda bear on your tank. Ya know why? "The panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca, lit. "black and white cat-foot"),[2] also known as the giant panda to distinguish it from the unrelated red panda, is a bear[3] native to central-western and south western China." Pandas aint from Japan (I'm assuming you put the panda on there to show your japanese heritage, if it's for some other reason then my appologies)
