Hi.

Will post pics as soon as I find a site that can host them for me. Any suggestions?

Bought a Black 08 Hornet with hugger, fly-screen and pillion cover. Also managed to find an 07 Shoei Raid II Paranoia - what a funky helmet!!!

Also contemplating replacing the mirrors with the CB1000 R mirrors. I prefer their shape and apparently they provide more "rear" view then the standard mirrors.

Welcome, that's an extremely nice looking bike. Are you a fan of the band Pennywise or the Stephen King clown? Or something else entirely?

Hi Ya.

Thanks for all the posts!! I noticed that some members are freaked out by Clowns, my step-daughters also hates them, so she is not partial to my helmet (Shoei Raid II Paranoia) that has a clown on each side.

As a new rider I am really enjoying riding and the Hornet. Have about 2500 km on the clock now and slowly getting more confident.

Pennywise (for me) is from the S.King novel and FNG = F*cking New Guy.

Regards.
