And brake line.dayeve said:Richo, you are absolutely right. I have never ridden a dropped and stretched bike so I have nothing to compare it to but my assumption comes from how goofy they look.
How bad could it really be? I drove my old commodore around for 6 months without springs in the back and choppies up front and besides speed bumps it wasn't too bad.
I have often considered getting those bolt on swingarm extenders for when I go to WSID but the thought of changing my chain once a week from stock length to stretched just to go to the drags seemed a bit extreme.
A lot of things are easily settled on a purely theoretical basis, for instance, have you ever been shot? Do you ever want to be?richo said:There's been a lot of shitslinging on lowered and stretched bikes, but largely theoretical whinging, how many of you can say that you've actually ridden a lowered bike?
I rode a 99 r6 that was dropped about 2 inches front and rear (stock length) a fair distance at considerable speed. It was obviously not the best handling bike in the world but it wasn't /that/ bad.
I sure as fuck wouldn't do it to my bike, but for a poser bike it's fine.
really? so you have the balls to throw your legs over the bars at speed? or hang off the side like that at speed? or even stand up on the seat and keep your balance? yeah im sure you do.Hessian said:There is no accounting for taste. If its stretched, it means you cant ride.
And you're gay.
