  7. Very nice - looks great in that colour. :)

    If you want some ideas for mods, have a look at the current "Australian Road Rider" (no, really). They've got a streetfightered 650 as a project bike, IIRC.

  8. Thanks fellas :) I picked it up with only 7k on the clock, basically brand new, the difference between the the virago...no, scratch that, even my friends cbr is phenomenal, the previous owner has put a factory sports can on the back and it just sounds...so animal, you have to hear it to understand :grin: my only gripe is that its not very comfy to ride, bear in mind that I'm coming from a comfy cruiser, being on it for 30 minutes or so results in sore wrists and forearms, some thing that I would get used to, so my friend said, well I gotta say, I love being in front of my all ricer 250 mates instead of behind :LOL: just gotta get her insured before I start ridding her about...and yes, she has a name..a girls one too :) Jasmine-Blue :grin:
