Hello from Santa Barbara California.

I like your ride and I myself am partial to the yellow/black paint scheme.

In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.

Hello from Florida USA from a fellow USD fork on the 919 guy. Around here the RC51 forks seem the most used set up. Anyway, welcome to the forums and love your bike!

Nice ride

Very nice looking machine Lucien and good luck with the ongoing mods.

But can somebody, anybody, please tell me what the deal is with inverted forks? Is it purely aesthetics or is there some functionality like getting more mass lower to the ground for center of gravity. What am I missing?

The fork sliders (the large tubes) are heavier but stiffer. By flipping them usd, you simultaneously reduce un-sprung mass while increasing the torsional stiffness.
