Your welcome. I prefer function over fashion anyway. But if I'm going to change something to make it better I try to at least make it look good at the same time, if applicable. Hey i'm 39, big 40 in feb. I use my 919 for commuting too,and my bike is still a stock 06, bought in july, 4500 miles.
But that is quickly changing.Thanks to this forum!
My motto is: If it doesn't make it faster, stronger or just plain work better, remove it!
