Same.

I run it through the touch less (with undercarriage sprayer) like every other week. And once in a while I'll pull in a bay and hose down the underside myself.

Not a bad deal, but totally not my style of bike.

It is also more streetfighter ish than rat. But price is right for two wheels as long as its safe.

I really need to finish lingering car stuff and get my bike on the ground again.

Compounding coma between little sleep and qdoba lunch wasn't a good choice. I'm going to have a bad time.

If you could see it up close it's rat. It has the worst rattle can paint job ever. lol

Rough texture, runs, I think they even painted over the decals.

This is what it looked like new.



I'm leaning toward finishing it like the FZ750 with the bikini fairings. not sure yet though.



Need a new tire for the rear, turn signals and mirrors still.

lol so true.

Germans love their compounds too.

bat = Fledermaus = fleder (flying) + maus (mouse, duh)
pen = Kugelschrieber = kugel (ball) + schrieber (writer, schrieben is the verb to write)

English for all the bastardization it has gone through over the years, is considered a germanic language. (as that is where it started/stemmed from)
