I went with a brand that's based here in Southern California, but their products are made overseas. However, I will not be giving them free marketing as I may soon be a competitor. Check your PM.

However, as for everything, please see my breakdown (out of 10):

Out Of The Box Direct Fitment: 6.5
Flexibility / Workability: 8.5
Individual Pieces Alignment: 7.0
Construction Quality (uncrash tested): 9.0
Weight: 9.0
Customer Service: 9.0
Price: 8.5
Packaging: 8.0
Shipping: N/A - I choose to local pick up.

Overall: ( 6.5 + 8.5 + 7.0 + 9.0 + 9.0 + 9.0 + 8.5 + 8.0) / 8 = 8.2

Overall satisfaction with me working my magic on them, and taking my time for a professional grade finish = 9.2.

Wait until I paint them.

Oh, one other thing. I forgot about this company before I ordered my stuff, but they seem very decent. Check them out.

Looking good! I checked out that motox site but they don't sell track fairings for my bike. Looking like I'm stuck with armor bodies, hot bodies, or air tech. Probably go with armor bodies if I can get a discount. I also never got your pm.

Here's my monstrosity as it sits. It's mostly cbr f4i, with some 600rr, 929, and 1000rr thrown in and some aftermarket stuff too. I'm almost there hahaha

Man I spent like $1500 on suspension upgrades for my Ninja 650R and never even wound up riding it. All I have left to order are some ZX-14R calipers and the master cylinder/lever/lines. Paid for it, might as well enjoy it but I literally haven't ridden in a year

Road Atlanta would be awesome. I'm not sure if we'll get there or not this coming year. We're focusing on cmp, vir, Daytona and roebling since that's where our ccs series will run.

You're a madman! It's killing me not being able to ride mine right now. Lucky I have a mini moto to keep me sane until I can pick up another street bike.

Ha, just realized you're in Savannah. I'm down here on vacation right now.

Anyway we had our first kid in December so I just haven't had time. And after totalling my car at the track in May I haven't had much desire either. What I wish I could do is take a mini bike to the go kart tracks. Then I wouldn't need a bike at all......

I totally understand, especially with having a new baby. We have the Herrin Compound in Dublin ga. for a mini bike track, but I've never been there.

You wouldn't happen to be staying in a hotel downtown would you?

I'm workiing on building the website now. The name is Athy Powersports.

Teaser updates:

There's a reason I painted it in the process that I did. I'll explain later.

Tail section is complete minus additional wet sanding and polishing. BTW, this is all rattle canned.

Slow, but it's progress. Time is precious as an adult.

If I'm seeing things correctly, you have the option of running a supersport or a superbike tail? How come only 1 has a number? Looking good though!

Have you bought an r1 for a street bike?

It's part of the rules for certain sanctioned bodies of racing.

I still have tendencies to get one someday, but I figure maybe after I retire. Glad you got out of that unscathed!

Yeah, it's really dangerous, and we try our best to keep it as safe as possible.

I attest everything and walking away unscathed as part of the Lord's plan.

... and this is how she looks after me painting her in my garage with rattle cans. Flourescent paint is so difficult to work with. Nevertheless, I did the best I could with the time and resources available to me. I'm eager to see what I can do with a professional gun and an industrial air compressor.

Looking good! Love that green stripe down the side. Makes me want to change mine up a bit
