The profile of the tire seems different and the bike feels lighter when changing lanes. They also put EBC brake pads on the rear because i complained about brake noise in rear. Fine job! I installed HID lighting in low beam and although it wasnt totaly dark here i was disappointed in its performance. it is 500 lumas i think. Been reading the forums everynite , Im getting the itch to ride,cant wait for 40 degree. weather...
Did you install REAL HID, or some bulb that said HID like?
HID is about 2500-3000 lumens. Halogen bulbs typically 800-1500.
There is a HUGE difference in the two.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
