I moved it here though so we dont clutter this thread.

Finally got it all together. Bike has been through some changes but this is it. Only thing I might want to add is a (functional) flyscreen, and I want to upgrade the projector to the new Morimoto D2S 3.0s.

*EDIT* Awaiting turn signals and mirrors obviously.

I finally got off the bench and picked up something to do: :D

I got her late in the season, and only got in a couple serious rides before the snow arrived. I already know I'll be looking for tires, after the winter passes. Open to (reasonably priced) suggestions, particularly of the dual-compound variety...

I expect to have some action shots up next year... ;)

For street riding the new(ish) Continental Road Attacks work great. I've been using these on my wife's Honda CBF600F and a lot of my customer's bikes and I've only had positive feedback. They're quite a bit cheaper than all out sport tires and you can do some serious hooning when the mood strikes. You can also run the Contis down farther before the handling goes off. The only experience I have with the two component tires are on some of the bigger Triumphs and Suzukis (Bandit, GSX1400, and the like) that have come through the shop using Michelins. They still head plenty tread depth but once the transition point from the center and edge compounds were somewhat worn the bike would have a mind of its own. Imprecise turn-in and an all around nervous feel. Don't know how the mags in the States do their testing but this sort of thing is rarely mentioned in the tests here in Germany. They calculate the wear over a certain distance but rarely have the time to wear the tire out to see how it behaves. Then the marketing gurus get involved and it's hard to get a feel of what actually works. There's lots of good stuff out there but I feel the Contis give you the most bang for the buck ($).

Thanks for that tip!
Any idea how they are in cooler temps?
The thing that tipped me off to a problem with these Dunlops is that they had trouble hooking up at around 50F/10C, which I don't consider to be "too cold to grip". With my older bike, 20-25 years ago, I don't ever remember having a problem with my Metzeler front.
