I'm 6'1" and 235lbs.

I rarely ride above 90 and only on the highway a couple times a month at most. 43t sprocket makes for much more fun out of the hole and the bike always feels like it's in the right part of the rev range. Is more fun for the way I ride the bike.

This weekends mod: GSXR 750 rear shock.
Made a massive difference in how the bike feels and handles. The rear end feels well planted all the time. I think this is the best mod I have made yet and for the price it can't be beat. Picked the shock up for $32 shipped and it took about 1-1/2 hr to install. Inexpensive, simple to install, incredible results.

Although they are lacking in the customer service side, (emailed them regarding a questions 4 weeks ago and still have not gotten a response), the product quality is top notch. Will update as I spend more time on it. Hope all had a Merry Christmas and enjoyed the holidays.

Will upload pics from my computer later. Can't from phone right now.

beautiful. white is my favorite color scheme for these bikes. I'm in the market for a 500. i like the F but with road trips, i think I'm gonna look for a full fairing bike. and I'm probably going to upgrade the seat.

Thanks. I would definitely suggest upgrading the seat if you plan on taking it on long trips. You'll also want to upgrade the suspension. Just upgraded the rear shock and it was a major improvement.
