Hi all im about to start riding my first ever Cruiser (4-6weeks) after writting my prized 2014 ZX1400R Ohlins Spec Edition off on the 27th of July,before that I had a 2012 ZX1400R a 2010 ZX1400 and two CBR1100xx Blacbirds and many other bikes before that,ive had plenty of spare time to personalise my Cruiser and think after $2500 on top of everything ive put my wife through,I better lay off on the aftermarket bits for now.Cheers from Stephen:icon_cool:
