Some levers were on my list, wasnt planning on upgrading pads and brake lines untill i began doing track days and needed the added performance (anti-brake fade, extra bite, etc.)

At this point, i am done modding. I am going to get used to the bike as it sits, however, i might sand out the frame slider holes a little bit as a few of you suggest. Just had my insurance transferred from Wilsonville to Newberg (i moved) and it jumped up... a lot! So, they next $3000 i get, will be going to pay insurance for the next year. Fuck Insurance.

lol, i didnt leave the 'beginner' badge on it. I put it on for pictures, more as a joke. As far as the 55w bulb melting my lens, I have heard it can happen, from a lot of people, but have NEVER seen it happen, either in person, or in a forum (here or 600rr.net) so im not to worried, actually, i am not worried at all.... as far as i am concerned, its a myth (for these lens atleast, maybe not a tiny ass fog light lens)

lol (as he goes to find a post of a lens melting)

Im not saying it hasnt ever happened. Im just saying that I personally have never seen it. lol Dont waste your time, cause I dont doubt that it has happened. it just (obviously) isnt very common.

And dont come back with an R6, or GSXR thread with the Problem. I want to see a HONDA lens melted.

Is that haze on the inside or outside of the lens?

Edit: And what kind of bike is it? (looks like a Honda...?)

Welp, im averaging about 1000miles a month, and thats with shitty weather (not riding it very often) Once the sun comes out, that will skyrocket. You must have pretty high mileage

Thats not bad, about 10.5k a year. you ride all year? Or just when its decent outside?

I dont understand how some people have had there bikes a few years, and only have 5-6k miles.... I will probably have ATLEAST 8k by the end of summer. Probably more than that
