Yea, I am with you totally. But, I put all that stuff on my 6r because it fit with only a little machining. I am sure if you had a machine shop at your disposal, you'd not be making all sorts of crap that you couldn't have otherwise???
I wasn't going to just give the guy that bought my 7 all that stuff, so I did the next best thing, I used it. I had everything you could nearly put on a bike w/o going into the engine and a shock, too bad, because now I am getting the 10r, but I have a backup 6r (wifes) which I can put most of that stuff on, so it won't be that bad after all, if I can't find someone with a 7 that wants it. Ebay here I come, in 2 months!
The good thing for me is the fact I am in the Navy and overseas right now, going to be home late feb, of which I have already called my dealer and told him the first black one mine.
I am going to look for some of the carbon fibre wheels while I am in naples, not to mention new Dainese!!! Anyone need any bad ass italian stuff??
Yes, I do spend more money than most people on my bike, but I have a small sporting goods pro shop that provides me with my "play money" that I can spend on stuff that might not make that big of a difference. I guess if you don't have it, you want it. I hate wanting it!!!
If you are not smoking your pucks and scuffing your sidewalls, you are just not livin'!!!
