Those look pretty cool. I was looking at the forks on this S4R and they look huge. Maybe it's my imagination, but the front suspension of the S4R looks a lot beefier than the S2R...

Thanks for that link Plucky. :)
They look suspiciously like the ones that are on the bike now. I think I'm actually looking for a higher price-point because I want something that will still look...

I'm glad my post made you think about it. I didn't think it was likely, but it happened. They are easy bikes to lift-away into a truck, and the parts are worth more than the bike as a whole.

I'm probably going to take the leap. The weight-forward thing is likely what makes the back tire slip-out in turns. I will try to be careful with that, while I am getting more comfortable with the...

I was wondering if anyone had good recommendations for an online site that had some good accessories for reasonable prices.

I will be needing turn signals, grips and bar-end mirror, to start.

ISO Anti-theft recommendations

Trackimo was recommended to me. Of course there are several options, but it looks like '$139 for last years model and first year free' might be a good option.

Any advice on what is a good...

Oh daaang. I had the belts replaced on my last one - it wasn't too terribly bad as far as cost. I actually wrote this guy earlier today and asked about the tank being sealed - we'll see if he...
