Stripping the tail
Trust that little voice in your head that says 'Wouldn't it be interesting if...'; And then do it.

Re-assemble and test the lights before installation. Will get a smaller plate after the lockdown.

 I also polished the exhausts today with autosol. Didn't like that copper color, like the silver more.

FFW to about 30Sec, about a 2min part with DS bikes racing and the guy on the XE1200 not shy to throw it around.


Cool video

Big improvement in looks with that kaalstert.

Ja, that guy on the Triumph moves it up, one can see the struggle to put the power down nicely, tail spins all over the place.

Redwolf, where is your number plate light, and what are the two clear "spots' on the rear for?

OK, sorry, I see the "spots" are your flickerlights.
