Saw the picture and thought I recognised her and when I got further down the article I unfortunately realised she lives in the same street as me.

Stick a sign in her yard in the middle of the night - "Killer Lives Here" or similar.

Powdercoating - DON'T!!!

I am a powder coater and a motorcycle guy also. The oven temps to any aluminum or steel parts can not be heat treated nor annealed by the powder coating process. The temps (usual temps 300-385 degrees) but rarely exceed 425 degrees (for high temp powder) for 10 mins, also the type of powder doesn't make a difference on the alloys. Proper pretreatment of aluminum includes a chemical bath & coating which would highlight all cracks in the aluminum. Cracks is aluminum rims are due to casting defects, improper tire mounting by machine or by hand, abuse of the rim by pot holes, operator, a firm hit with a hammer, or your rim was just dropped of a bench. We have rejected motorcycle & automotive rims prior to powder coating for hairline fractures.

LOL. That paddling never stops amusing me. And the landings like a duck hitting water, :grinning:

I would like to see them try to ride an enduro or SuMo where they could only get one toe down. :smirk:

R6 or Zx-6???

Hi there, I'm new to the forums but looking for some advice on what to get next. Currently have a 1990 ZZR600D but looking for something a little more modern come January.
I have narrowed this down to a early-mid 2000's Yammy R6 or a early-mid 2000's Kwaka zx-6. Mainly looking to find out from people who have owned either of these things like riding position, comfort ect...
It will be used near enough everyday for commuting and distance journeys (400 miles) on rare occasion.
Any insight given will be much appreciated and thank-you in advance.
