the thermometer goes to "FLIPPING FREEZING" i think... i'm pretty sure i wouldn't even ride when it's that cold, and i'm used to the Tundra weather. Other than that, it's pretty schweeeet lookin!

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

instead of getting a second job, i thought it would be better to apply myself to my current job a lot better hoping the boss will give me a raise. On second thought i think it would be easier to sell myself. As i wouldn't be much worth as a toy boy (sleep most of the time) . i'm going now to sell my body for scientific experiments. I wonder if any mutations would be better or worse for my bike. Extra leg = more drag. Third eye = better perceptions. Hmmm.

true but the one on the previous page is more suited to the hornet. max revs at 13 i think. even lcd tacho. Only problem is for some reason they thought it wasn't necessary to have a temp gauge on it. so seeing as the tacho is a electrical signal type i'm guessing it wouldnn't be hard to modify the range of the tacho movement. In effect doubling the range of the tacho. would look impressive revving to 20k but we'd know the truth. finally got my lights through ebay will post some pics for ideas/opinions from everyone who wishes to give it.
