something looks fucked up on the brake/foot peg mount.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Looks to me that the same super high-tech aircraft grade plastic fasteners have been re-employed...

But I was thinking last night (sometimes a pissed off brain can work wonders...) about the possibility of someone coming up with a carbon fiber replacement for the Foreman Grills.

Can anybody mock up a pic with carbon fiber in that area??


Lastly, I'm wondering what 'friendly' ergos Kawasaki is talking about. Looks like about the same seat/peg/clip-on relationship to me. The clip-ons certainly don't appear to be any higher or further back.

Some large hi-res -- and at least in this color and this resolution and angle, to me the front is looking better:

The front, back and top are looking fine. It's just the side view that sucks

Hmmm, i like the black rear, makes the bike less massive. That together with another exhaust might do the trick for me...

I believe that the visually heavy exhaust/passenger-peg hangers are adding much more sense of bulk to the rear than one would guess. It's beyond my photo-editing skills
really to do a good simulation of otherwise.

But my feeling is a light-appearang hangar and the exhaust being more typical sportbike appearing or say the Brock Megaphone design will do a lot to yet further slim
the appearance of the rear.

Here's the closest I can do -- simply omitting the hanger, plus a couple of other things I think help. Of course a hanger is required, but not necessarily so bulky a one. For many bikes
and pipes the hanger is not obtrusive at all and lends little to no sense of bulk, and with a different exhaust and hanger that could be the case here too I think:

You'd better stop now, or I might want to trade in my 12

You can FTP all the grudge race pics as well. I'll resize them, AND even throw on the bikeland.org stamp
