Very nice brotha! I don't know what it is about this ti stuff, but it leaves you wanting more when you take a step back to look at what you just installed...

It's all your fault I know I'm going to be looking for things to replace for Ti once I get the measuring tool Rearset hardware is first on the to-do list

I can see this new Ti addiction is going to add up really quick

Still waiting on...

CRG SC2 Clutch Lever & Perch
GB Racing Engine Cover Kit
Pro Bolt USA Ti bolts
...and I MIGHT pull the trigger on something speacial next week

LOL

Pics @ Idyllwild with Ti hardware installed...



Took her out for some spirited riding in Idyllwild today... Realized the Dunlops from the Factory are trash

I also noticed my mirrors get in the way of my perfect body and head positioning Probably need some CRG's and blockoffs...

It's been a couple years since I've done Idyllwild's long sweepers and 60 MPH knee downs- Last time was on my '08 CBR 600RR will full Ohlins suspension; I guess I just miss the feel of the Ohlins setup as I was bouncing around the road in certain areas today. Today was really a friendly reminder that my modding will probably never ever ever ever EVER come to an end

Now, you and Steve should feel bad for corrupting yet another brother in arms Chris. I've been doing my best to stay away from that damn tool lately, but it keeps calling me....

My other rides get no love

That is one nice lift kit you have there

Only the R1 gets the hands on care... Everything else goes out for detail and servicing

Toyo MT's. Very good choice. Those would've been my next set of tires on my F350, but it got sold. Now I have an F450 that I don't care to put 6 of those Toyo beasts on. haha

Here was my baby(not to thread jack, just paying my respects )...

I hear ya. If I could find a really good detailer around here, I'd send the vehicles to them. I tried one the other day and they did a decent job, but it wasn't really a full blown detail, more like a very thorough clean on everything with a basic wax.

Damnnn! That thing is a beast! I don't blame you, I wouldn't want to drop the money for six of these either!

igoldeneye,

The bike is looking amazing. I just realized all the CF that you have been adding. I also love the brembos you did. Did they come powder coated in black or did you have that done?

Thank you sir!

The Brembo rear caliper came in black. They are also available in different colors. Since Carrozerria is a few minutes away from me, I just went down there and picked one up:

http://www.forged-wheel.com/fw/index.php

Kit comes with a longer Galfer SS brakeline, just need to choose your line and banjo colors.

Got a few other things I'm picking up from there also...
