Well thanks everyone and yes I do ride this bike out in the canyons and I do drag knee on it. I won a Bieffe Max Biaggi replica, nothing specail but just winning was enough. Putt putt 3 I had a lot of trouble shifting my bike with my boots on because the shifter moves away from your foot and not with it. So I bought the attack rear sets and I love them and I'm able to shift alot better. Let me know about the swing arm and side stand I can polish them for you in a couple hours. I'm still trying to get used to the dampener so I'm not sure how much I like it yet. I also bought a PCIII at the bike show for only $250.00, I can't wait to get it installed.
