    This thread is turning into a shit show lol

    Anyways, Norcal, next time around you should do a front end swap on top of what you did last time. Your last bike (do you still have it?) was awesome, all it needed was a more modern front end and the associated brake delink. Take it a step farther and a custom light weight subframe, fairing stay and wheels and it would be the ultimate vfr.

    I'm at 460 pounds with a gallon in the tank right now. I want to one day do a Ducati 1098 rear wheel, light weight subframe and then tear into the engine.

    I want to buy a new VFR and drop it off at George Dean's shop with a check for ten grand and just let George do it. I'd still be thinking why in the hell didn't I just get the MV Agusta.

    Decisions decisions.

    Because the MV is an inline four. And pretty heavy for its class. If I was going that route, I'd go rsv4.

    I'm still trying to decide CR46....Im looking around on the usual classified pages and I'm in preliminary conversations with a couple motorcycle importers about potentially bringing in a Japanese import....not sure what I will end up deciding at this point. I have a little time to figure it out, as I'm still finishing up my supermoto project.

    How about the Tuono? That is a bad ass bike and with a windscreen a very comfortable nice sport tour bike.

    I'm not going buy a new VFR or an MV or send either one to George Dean. I have four bikes. Now to the skills, talent or knowledge thing. Anyone with a lick of sense knows that some of the work on engines of any kind is best sent out. To even infer that any body here has all the shit necessary to do what Norcalboy is trying BS about is wet behind the ears.

    Check oot George Deans shop..He's the real thing..and has a real dynamometer not one of those shoot out versions that crank out a torque/HP curve. Seen a few of those fudged too..

    As usual BB side of this this story is Rubbish, As Norcalboy is correct most of the time and this is one of them. BB has no bikes that aren't on the hot list and never fixes anything except maybe a pothole on his barley standing and unsafe bridge.:stickhorse:

    Fixing potholes is best left to those with no skills, knowledge or talent. This according to the gospel of Saint Norcalboy the Wise. Could be that SOW is lookin for love in all the wrong sphinters.

    Me BMW is hot.. So hot it's unreliable. From many more than one source or real builders, there is all manner of things that can be done to an engine. A DNF is still a DNF.

    i'm considering a business to help fund all of my projects. The business is gonna be crushing BMW's, melting them down, casting them into Harley gas caps and selling them on the Harley forums....I'll link to some of Billy's Harley hate posts here and use that as marketing. I'm gonna call them BugskatBillyCaps, and yes, they will be lighter than a stock Harley cap and also have skulls!

    The check is in the mail. Make sure the first one off the line is autographed like you promised.
