    Oh yes. I absolutely love San Diego. Started riding here, and I’m never leaving! Haha. Where are you from, 74demon?

    Just over the county line in the Temecula area. I live on one side of the 74 and work in OC on the other….

    Where are you at?

    Ortega used to be better. The pavement in parts has become horrible in the past few years, and the traffic is nuts. There is much better riding in the mountains of north and east San Diego.

    Let me know if you want to join me and empty your tank sometime.

    Let’s hope the weather improves. Rain is good for many things, but riding motorcycles is not one of them!

    Of course! I got mine with a Yosh slip-on and a CBR1000rr integrated tail light that doesn’t fit… so I need to find a replacement. :P

    @mang0:
    would you be able to get a video of your yoshi in action? I currently ride with a stock exhaust but I’m looking to upgrade soon, I’ve been eyeing the Toce exhausts. As far as integrated tail lights, I really like the programmable one from TST Industries, they are sponsors of the sight too, @tstagent will help you with any questions you might have about them.

    I’m basically saving up for the TST Industries hyper pack that they offer, they seem like a great company from what I know so far:)

    Sure! Once the rain stops here, I’ll see if I can post a Youtube up. Or… I’ll can see if I can find someone else’s video.

    I vote AKRAPOVIC! Haha. That’s the exhaust that I wanted to get, but I bought mine with the RS5, so I’m just keeping it now. Might sell it later on and finally get the Akra though. :D

    TST is very highly rated! I think TST and Tripage are the top IT lights people recommend.

    yea, the only thing I bought from TST so far was a stick on light for my licenseplate…but they have so many great videos, plus the fact that they sponsor the site is reason enough for me to want to go with them.

    Ah yes. PICTURES! Surprisingly, I don’t have many. Have only taken her out like 2 times for a spin. It’s been rainy… and I’ve been just a little scared of her.

    First pic ever taken!

    It has, unfortunately, been down before. On both sides. Even before I got it. :( I figured I’d drop it at least once (and I have already, on the right side), so I wasn’t too worried about it. Once I’m a bit more comfortable with the height, I’ll probably replace the plastics and get some aftermarket ones. Or some used OEM. Not sure yet.

    It does, strangely, look like a fish though. Must be the angle. Never noticed that before o_0

    I heard that, same situation as me. My 04 looked like poo when I got her. My buddy low sided both sides before I got it. I took all the decals off and buffed the paint as best as I possibly could. Had to fix all the electrical issues and put new mirrors on. It doesn’t look too bad and still get plenty of compliments. The original owner thought I actually had it painted the first time he saw it after I worked it out. This is my 3rd street bike in the last 7 or 8 years and the only one of the three that I’ve dropped :poundinghead: I slipped on gravel in my driveway once. The RR is a tippy toe bike for my short legs but I refuse to lower it so I just slide off the side like I did with the dirt bikes. I am 5’5″ or so and just deal with it. Sorry to ramble, but I tend to talk a lot when I meet new people.

    Glad to know I’m not the only one with the short problem! I’m 5’2″, but I dropped my bike the first time I rode it because I stalled. :( Clutch and throttle are muuuch more sensitive than the Ninja 500!

    I’m hoping I can get a set of the OEM green fairings from 2009 to put on the 2007. :)
