Thanks! Nice choice with the M109R, I liked that bike too but it was a tad too big for me. I had to do a mid-control conversion to be able to ride the VROD, no way I could ride an M109R :B

Nice drop. Unrelated... did you tint your tail lights or paint them? Also I think your hood ornament is tilted slightly forward.

I don't think Mercedes is responsible for making us wait so long for the recall work to get done, it's the airbag manufacturer that's backordered like crazy.
