If you want to get noticed something like this would certainly stand out from the crowd.

A bit gaudy but I don't dislike it. Kind of lines up as a hoon mount. Perhaps a little too much red. I have also seen a 2V Sport with the rocker cover painted red with the original black plastic hiding the plug lead - it was a bit wrong. Red should be a highlight and subtle.

I am looking forward to seeing Pete's livery in 4 weeks. We will judge from there, though his "Holden" green horror looked OK to me. Remember though, I am not anywhere near "normal".

It's an interesting package. Doesn't appear to have any cooler circuit plumbing. No cooler, but no bypass hoses either. Ti pipes. Black frame. Billet brakes.

Intriguing.

Early throttle cable routing. 1100 seat. Stranger and stranger.....

It's a Corbin and suits me well. They are quite popular among Ghettoista.

Bar end weights are from Stelvio. With theRizoma bars they work well. Yes, they probably slow the steering...if you don't steer.... I find they work well for my application.

As for the seat? Sadly I think Jude's pillioning days are just about over and anyway the GRiSO is a shit bike for a passenger. I still have the Mana for the pair of us but think that I might move it on if I can find the right person for it.

gold forks- Ohlins' ?
I do like the way the Ti pipes blue up. Are the headers/downpipes equal-length? Guess that would take some engineering calcs given the different bends, to compare 'effective' lengths.

Forks are mix and match. The actual legs are Sachs off a V4 Tuono but with Matris internals. I had to bore the lower yoke and shim the top of the leg in the upper yoke because of size disparity. I did have a set of Ohlins, can't remember offhand what they were on originally, but after due consideration opted for what I have now.

Headers are different lengths but this can be compensated for by delta correction in the map.
