i gess its funny :-)

a little worrying thought, having studies motorcycles engineering to degree level i can tell you that the section he has cut from the frame might not appear to be a highly stressed region but in fact is increasable important when cornering, and he has left very high stress concentration factors in the frame, i would say this frame is now about 50-60% certain to fail due to fatigue loading,, which is worrying,, i actually do like to see people playing with there bikes thought and hope he is ok, in times gone by we all used to service and pimp our own bikes, i still do, but many just leave it up to the dealer now which is why there are lots of shiner very similar bikes about today, variety is good,, as long as it is good :-)

Wow, hes hit the big time...

I've seen this guys handy work appear on quite a few forums, and now here! The hole in his frame was cut to let more air into the airbox (hes cut big holes in that too) Hes also drilled a very large number of holes in his licence plate and removed most of the fairings. A lot of modifications. All are questionable...
