Technical and tyres
Oh, thank you! Though, do you know anything not as expensive, but still doing its job? It DOES cost a fortune, like Beelady said.
That is what is known as the "Harley Tax" - buy the bike then spend more to make it right.
But the Race Tech parts are not badly priced for what you get.
@hodge45 I buy Spada gear if possible. It's British, it's good quality and it's not overpriced. Make sure you get the right size. I see so many people who obviously didn't try sitting down in their new kit before buying. I often have a quiet smile when I see people trying things on in shops. They stand up straight and hold their middle in. Comfort seems to be the last thing on their minds.
A good idea to spice up world superbore bikes is to put a sex doll on the back, or even better put the girl on the front. I followed the series from 1989 but it's a total bore now it's time may come around again but with GP racing as good as it is I doubt you will see superbore bikes as popular as it was in the 90's.
