Hawaii was suprisingly boring with everyone making excuses at to why they''re there and ultimately it''s like living on a reservation in the middle of the ocean but without the tax breaks. If you can ride every major surfaced road on a poxy R6 in less than a day, gimme the mainland any day!

Salvage title, cheap, lower, lighter, smoother (under fairing these things are dog ugl

Info: V-Max´s..what can you say? Book ahead for any serious flat out riding and the suspension? ... 1936 Norton International ring any bells?
