It's a 2007 GSX-R600. It's actually for sale if you are interested. I'm his brother by the way. The bike is in great condition with low mileage (a little more than 2000). It hasn't been ridden that hard either, just a few quick accels but no stunts or anything. I enjoy living and being able to walk. Let me know if you are.

Haha thats alright, I love those bikes but you dont even need to list your price because i know i couldn't afford it. I've got a '96 katana 750 right now and its just about as fast as my roomate's '06 cbr 600rr so i imagine its similar to the gsxr too, but the lack of fuel injection is really starting to get to me. It runs absolutely terrible in the mornings because they need a rebuild. I also have been having that same kind of thought process and really thinking about getting a drz400s, i can go on and off road and i'll have more fun learning stunts and stuff like that at slower and safer speeds than 120+. and a lot less of a chance of a speeding ticket.

Or, I've got a better idea...I'll sell it for Jeep parts. So my bolts are still stuck and the hick working at the repair shop said he wouldn't touch them and "I'm on my own on that one." So, I want to knock this dude's teeth out and I'm still left with one less shock.

Where did you find that pic of the a-to-z rockers? Are they recent because the tube on them looks a little thicker than the tube on mine which are about 1 1/2 years old. If the newer ones have the thicker tube then i'd totally go with them. I really like mine but the one thing i dont like is after one good hit, the tube on my pass side has a dent in it, not horrible but i notice it. And i personally like the styling of them the best and you can't beat their price vs any other ones.Oh and another thing for the a to z's, they have the most underside coverage next to rockmen, they go almost all the way to the frame through out the whole length of the rocker guard.
Another thing tho, do you think you'll want wheel well to wheel well? or just flare to flare? because ww2ww is only available through rockmen and a to z as far as i know

I think flare to flare will be fine, esp because I am getting tube fenders. I really am leaning toward the PSCs though. I love the AtoZ but the look of the PSC is just nasty

I have decided on the PSC. Now should I paint them or have them powdercoated?

I'm not sure, my buddy has the a to z's powder coated and it looks nice and holds up well but when you actually hit it on a rock it will come off eventually just like the paint will, then you still got to touch it up just like you would with paint. So its kind of a waste of money when you look at it like that.
Then again, if you dont use them too hard the powder coat doesnt scuff or scratch with everyday use getting in and out so it will look better for longer like that.

Personally tho, i'd probably just paint them and you can still touch them up easily and have less money spent.

I am thinking of just painting them and them putting some grip tape where I would step.

Ya i'm still thinking of doing something like that to mine. Or i might put herculiner on just the bar, because that's what has taken the most abuse on mine, and would help for 'no slip' step kind of thing.

Did a Few Things today

First of all, I found my tripod so I took it through some trails and snapped some HDR pics. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
