Holy ****************balls, those are nice

If I may ask, how is the ride with the lower profile tires? Stock, M030, or aftermarket suspension?

Pete, that looks the business! Very wise choice in the end. When i decide to do disc and pads (yes 'discs' Pete, we are in England!) i'll give you a call and swing by.

You have touched the suspension yet have you?

You might also want to think about doing your AOS - and when you have worked out how do to it easily, i'll be popping by for you to do mine also!

Enjoy your new ride.

BTW i pulled the trigger on the IMS upgrade, new clutch and RMS. and for all those that wonder what the bearing looked like... it was like new!!
