    The alignment is great, and it has a really good cut off. Nobody has flashed their lights at me yet - I think it is perfect
    Actually an '06.

    The reason cheap HID kits blind people is because they're not angled properly. If they're angled properly they're fine.


    Also, deposit down on the R1.

    So since I started the whole KTM uber alles spergfest I got smashed financially losing my old job, getting a new one, moving and having to pretty well start from scratch with furniture and appliances. So no bike for me

    However last weekend on an interstate trip I took a detour through scenic mountain pass and seeing all the bike riders tearing up the twisty roads has reignited my desire for a bike. I've decided that my goal over the winter is to save up so I can go and blow it all on a bike in the spring. Most likely a Suzuki DR650 or maybe a DRZ400SM, seeing the motards flying past guys on crotch rockets in the corners looked too much fun, plus they'd be good enough on dirt for what I'd want to do.




    Also as someone with a lowered car, fuck HIDs especially on SUVs blinding me.

    I may have discovered where you went wrong.

    TBH, I actually agree with you: fuck SUV drivers.

    I went for the Triumph Street Triple R.
    Couldn't resist the color. So smooth and easy to drive, in love.
    Just gotta get a mini lisence plate holder.

    The perfect bike for urban shenanigans.

    I agree with you, I like the round ones this model got.
    The newer ones got some weirdass shaped headlights.

    Bimmers got worse.

    I've only ever seen the arrow exhaust as a double under the pillion seat (like the originals)

    edit - is that the orange one? Looks red to me on the pic (I had the orange one - looked great in the sun)

    This is the exhaust system delivered with the bike by Triumph.
    I still got the original ones in a unopened box since the Arrow kit not legal due to noise.

    I removed the passenger foot pegs today.
    The tail will be sorted next month, wallet reached its limit for this month.
    A second bike + new summer tires for my bimmer.

    Didn't you buy a spanking new bike last year varrakk? Some of you guys change bikes more often than other people change shirts!

    I opened that box I got from the dealer when I bought that bike.
    Innit lies two ugly ass cans with Arrow labels on them.
    Love the upgraded exhaust I got now, rev it up fast and the engine misfires, rewarding me with a big bang from the exhaust.
    Makes me giggle like a three year old toddler every time.

    @Helgur
    I still got it. It is racing oriented.
    hard suspension and way too powerful for a rookie like me.

    Love both, don't think I can let go of either

    Remounted my camera on my helmet, very happy with the results, more stable and out of the way. Also added some hook and loop for my lens cap

    Bike was running shit. Changed spark plugs and installed a Power Commander 3 I found for $80 - Perfect for my 2005 R6.

    Remapped - Bike runs smooth across the entire rev range. Awesome.

    Shame you had them high mounted cans for exhaust.

    The cans I got is much smaller.
