new brake master from a cbr1000rr it was an absolute NIGHTMARE bleeding it out. But I took it for a shakedown rip on Sunday. First time with the tune, the rearsets, and the fresh brakes altogether. She ran like white lightning boyyyyy

You get your suspension parts installed?
Nah, they are being custom built for my weight and ride style, will probably be a few weeks before I get parts in hand.

I did go on a 10 hour trip on sunday, rode almost 300 miles.

Hit up the Chalahala skyway and the tail of the dragon on the way back home, wanna see some pics?

Yeah, they machine the parts specifically for your bike, riding style and weight, and build the rear shock also suited towards the same variables.

Im chomping at the bit to get it though, from what Ive researched it appears the sv's are pretty much amazing once the stock suspension is replaced.

Pics from the trip incoming, next post!

Started out great, 60 degrees and sunny. Temps got up to about 65 degrees, but the clouds did move in. We even caught a little rain on the way home, but not too much, maybe 15 mins. Overall it was nice, just wish it was sunnier.

We bit off a bit more then we intended to, riding about 90 miles to get to the destination, and then ended up looping around and hit almost 300 on the full ride.

Most miles Ive ever done in 1 day for sure.

Haha, funny you mention ergos. Just pulled the trigger on some CR Low bend pro taper bars and pro grips, and a radiator guard.

Between all thats been done to the bike already, the suspension and bar mods, I think the only thing left is tires...

and maybe a sprocket combo and new chain at some point...

I swear its an addiction modding these damn 2 wheels of fun, almost as addicting as riding them!
