Whattya Beauty!

Hey Greg,

She looks Great! Best of luck.

Questions for you though on your farkles:
- how are you triggering the Motolights, normal switch or Autoswitch (or whatever it's called)?
- accesory socket on dash - where are you locating this? Was thinking about this as well, but.....

Mike

Nice!

Looks like you got Bridgestone tires. I'm curious how they do in the rain. I like my Z-6's OK, but not being able to easily tell percent of tire wear bothers me some.

Have a GREAT, FUN, & SAFE weekend!

That looks great. I've loved my blue one, but the graphite is the ticket.

Congrats!

Thumbs up

Cool beans Greg!

FWIW, the calipers look identical. No smaller, from what I can see.

The B'Stones are good...especially the rear, wet or dry. It's the way the front 020 wears that I hate. At about 6K, expect to change them. I love these new Avons, FWIW.
