Haha sounds like fun! Nothing like a good project bike to fill the garage, empty your wallet and leave you addicted to mods... My zxr400 track bike did that to me Nah the kato is my bf's, very kindly has given me free rein to ride anything in the garage.. Including the 2011 gixxer thou lol Haven't taken him up on it yet, but keen as to get on the kato in the next few weeks. Make sure you post some updated pics as you progress with the motard project! My ride is a fz6r with the throttle restriction removed so it's not quite LAMS approved anymore. Lots of fun and very comfy @MrThumper, that is one serious machine!! Very impressive!
