If not for the cornering and technical riding, building cafe bikes sure would be a waste of time. Haha...

My DS7 out for tracktime during it's build...


And it's a 40y/o 250... Fast is seldom used in the same sentance.
But there's an old adage: "It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow" ;)

Not to sound like your mother, but open jackets offer next to zero protection when you fall off. Please zip them up - just in case.

It's all about the curves, and acceleration and braking. Cruising around town is a part of it, but a small part.

I need new pipes on that bike - something to kick up.  I have an opportunity to buy a 2 into 1 MikesXS header/megaphone that supposedly adds 10HP at the wheel based on their dyno testing, but it looks very modern.

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Handles very nicely :) 

Tim, you need to move that muffler rearward, and upward.  At the relatively modest lean angle shown in the photo, the muffler should not be dragging on the ground.   It's a safety issue: if you were to lean a few more degrees, you would start to lose rear tire contact.

Love the corners and the CX works pretty well in them, I dont have any great pics of the tighter stuff and this one is an older one, it's since got new rear shocks, rebuilt forks and clipons, corners even better now :)





Cheers
